About Us

We work to maintain and enhance the world’s first Garden City, managing our local property portfolio to generate income, which we then invest back into the community and landscape of Letchworth Garden City.

In December 2018 we published our new strategic plan: Making Letchworth a great place for everyone

Over the three year period running until the end of 2021 we aim to: 

  • Improve life chances for people in Letchworth

  • Ensure Letchworth continues to be a great place to live

  • Ensure Letchworth continues to be a great place to work and do business

How we will achieve these aims is simple: we want to use the assets we already have to make life in Letchworth better for everyone who lives, works and goes to school here.

Grants & Funding

Through grants we fund charitable organisations that bring together mainly older, vulnerable or disadvantaged groups to make a positive contribution to their lives and the social fabric of the town.

Our regular grants programme has been temporarily suspended for The COVID-19 Catalyst Grant Programme. This offers funding to registered charities and groups that will be helping the community ensure peoples basic needs are met during this time.

If you have any questions about our Grant Applications, contact us on 01462 530366 or grants@letchworth.com.
