The Bike Project

The Bike Project workshop provides a relaxed atmosphere for people to learn a new skill and build their confidence, in a supportive environment.

Our participants work on donated bikes and refurbish them, which we then sell from our workshop. Each participant also gets to keep a bike they have worked on.

Address: 1 Rossgate, Gadebridge, Hemel Hempstead HP1 3LG
Opening hours:
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday – 10am-4pm

If you’d like to get involved or donate a bike, please email or call 01442 800269.

The Coffee Project

The Coffee Project gives DENS service users valuable barista experience – a great skill to help them take a step towards moving back into employment.

Staffed by service users, The Coffee Cart is a popular fixture at DENS fundraising events, creating fantastic aromatic coffee that lifts the spirits of our event participants.

The project also generates its own income to support its development and growth. As the project develops, the Coffee Cart will have a greater presence at local events and festivals, so keep an eye out on our social media for all the latest news!
