DENS was established by the action of individuals within the local church community and is sustained by their on going support as well as support by many other community groups.
There are so many ways in which we are given help:
We can be adopted by a church or faith group as an organisation to support as part of their outreach/mission work
Collections of food to help keep the Foodbank operational. Some of these are linked to specific seasons, like Harvest or Christmas but some are ongoing throughout the year with regular food collection by church and community group members.
Some groups choose us as their Charity of the Year and undertake fundraising on our behalf in this time
We give talks to local groups, both community groups and churches, about the work of DENS, making sure that there is a real awareness of the issue of homelessness in Dacorum.
