DENS Winter Appeal

Why we need your help

This winter things look bleak for homeless people within Dacorum who have limited food, no shelter, warmth or a future.

We urgently need your help TODAY to raise £50,000 for our services.

It's estimated that 150 people sleep homelesss in Dacorum each night. With your help, DENS is doing something about it.

With £12bn of cuts to the UK's welfare budget the situation is grave for the most vulnerable people in our community. The new DBC emergency accommodation, The Elms, is already at its full 41 bed capacity with a queue of 4-8 people most days. The number of people coming to the Day Centre for help has increased by 60% since last year. Plans are in place to distribute 500 emergency food parcels between November and February.

DENS seek solutions: we help people in crisis with accommodation, resettlement and training as they move towards the goal of independent living. Last year DENS helped around 640 people with housing related issues and a further 3135 people by providing emergency food parcels. This year, with your help, we will support even more people.
