We have been very fortunate for the creative fundraising activities and food donations from local businesses. We now find ourselves in different circumstances; whilst our Foodbank levels remain high, the pandemic has hit DENS hard financially, and we now need your help.
With live events and community activities cancelled, we’ve experienced a loss in income and it’s vital that we recoup these funds to keep our vital services open and allow us to continue supporting local vulnerable people.
We kindly ask that, instead of donating food/time/clothes, please instead give a regular financial commitment to DENS to help us now, and over the coming difficult months and years ahead.

Other ways your business can support DENS
Give your employees the chance to donate to DENS directly from their salary. Payroll Giving allows employees to give more for less, as the tax that would normally be paid to the government can be gifted to the charity. These regular donations can help us plan for the future and help support more vulnerable people.
Raise your brand awareness with a readymade marketing opportunity, and a willing audience, which maximises public engagement and helps reduce our event costs. Our flagship events run throughout the year with tailored sponsorship packages to suit every business. With your support, every penny raised can go towards helping people get back on their feet and into independent living.
Take part in our Events
Test your team’s knowledge at our annual Spring Quiz, sign up and get your adrenaline pumping at our Hillbuster cycling event. Aim high at our Abseil, or make your Zzz’s count at our Sleepout, or even better, why not hold your own Sleepout? Signing up to our events is a great way to build team camaraderie and raise funds while supporting our work.
CSR Volunteering Opportunities
CSR Volunteer opportunities are still on hold due to the pandemic. When we are permitted to resume, because volunteer opportunities are so limited within our services, we have been looking at ways where we can be fair and transparent to all the local companies who wish to support us. Naturally, this has to be mutually beneficial to our charity as well as to local businesses, and with the increasing costs to DENS to host these CSR days, plus the loss of income from all cancelled fundraising events this year, and with the current economic climate, our key priority has to be to generate much-needed regular funding enabling us to plan ahead and keep our vital services running for vulnerable people in Dacorum.
We have recently launched our DENS Business Partner Programme and in return for a modest monthly financial commitment, we will priorities CSR opportunities to our partners. See above for details.
