A SAFE SPACE TO LEARN NEW SKILLS
Our Social Enterprise Projects provide DENS clients the valuable opportunity to:
- Develop employability skills in a supportive environment
- Build confidence
- Feel part of a community
- Make new friends
- Create amazing bikes and coffee that provide additional income to continue DENS’ work
The Bike Project
Address: 1 Rossgate, Gadebridge, Hemel Hempstead HP1 3LG
Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday – 10am-5pm
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 refurbish bikes that are donated to us, which we then sell from our workshop to help fund the project. Each participant also gets to keep a bike they have worked on. The Bike Project also offers a wide range of bike servicing options.
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 Van 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 Van will have a greater presence at local events and festivals, so keep an eye out on our social media for all the latest news!
