As Head of Community Services at DENS, I work with some of the most vulnerable families and individuals in Dacorum. Sadly, headlines about families facing the impossible choice between paying for food, heating or rent are very real, and that’s why I am writing to ask for your help.
As winter sets in, the demand on our services will increase. Many families and individuals are at risk of food poverty, homelessness and the associated mental, physical and social health risks. DENS gives vital food provisions to struggling households and brings people out of the cold into our warm and welcoming hostel.
We’re preparing to support more people than ever this winter, but we need your help to do this.
As a valued supporter of DENS, we’re asking for your help to support local people facing crisis.
- £12 could pay for a hot Christmas dinner for six socially isolated or homeless people at our Day Centre
- £25 could pay for a 1-2-1 counselling session for someone struggling with their mental health
- £40 could pay for a food parcel to feed a family for three days
- £65 could pay for two homeless people to access our emergency Crash Pad accommodation on a cold winter night
On behalf of everyone at DENS, a huge thank you for any amount you can give.
With our warmest wishes,
Head of Community Services
