 Welcome to Hidden Needs Trust,

 A personal message from Rachel Goodfellow, Hidden Needs Trust Founder, Chair of Trustees and Fundraiser.

 2020…what a year! We started off with a bang and a fantastically successful concert in January. See details and a post-concert review
 However, suddenly we were all thrown into a very worrying and uncertain world…Covid-19 appeared fast and furious. Nobody knew what was really happening, or the degree of emergency and 

 danger for some weeks into the year, but then the PM asked for lockdown.

HNT is very pleased to announce, that the Dorset Opportunity Groups (Dorchester, Blandford) and Somerset Opportunity Groups (Yeovil and Taunton) have each received £2500.00 in grants from funds raised during 2019.

 ​​During 2015-17 over £25,000 was raised through the Hidden Needs Trust with the help of 

Somerset Community Foundation.

Beneficiaries: Blandford and Dorchester Opportunity Groups £5,300 each, Taunton Opportunity Group £7,850 and Yeovil Opportunity Group £6,850

Plus a £17,000 cut in funding for Dorchester Opportunity Group was overturned by HNT's intervention; without this they may have faced closure.

They are still open and recently achieved an outstanding OFSTED rating.
