DENS Day Centre

A first point of contact for many vulnerable people, the DENS Day Centre has been providing support to the community for over a decade.

Our staff and team of friendly volunteers fully assess our visitors to evaluate how we can best help and improve their situation. They are trained to tackle a spectrum of issues. This is a hugely positive step where DENS can inform them on the range of services that we offer, including:

Food and Drink – providing an open, hot-meal drop-in service. It also acts as an outlet for Dacorum’s Foodbank

Cleaning Facilities – Visitors have access to showers as well as laundry facilities.

Clothing – Clothes, toiletries and sleeping bags are given to those who have no accommodation or unable to access The Elms.

Computer Access – Allows visitors to access the internet, search for jobs and look for accommodation.

Help & Advice – Covering eviction, job loss, benefit claims, filling out forms and solving personal issues – we're here to listen and offer support. 

The Elms Referral – for those seeking temporary accommodation, the Day Centre is a key point of referral as well as for long term living solutions.
