Dacorum Emergency Night Shelter
DENS is an independent charity, supporting homeless people in and around the Dacorum area of Hertfordshire - Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted, Tring, Kings Langley and the surrounding villages.
DENS started in 1998 as a temporary winter night shelter rotating around a number of the local church halls, during the worst winter months.
Today DENS currently operates 6 main services; the Day Centre, the Night Shelter, Move-On
Accommodation, Resettlement Support, Distribution Service and DENS Property Services.
Members of NBC get involved in many different ways at DENS: helping out at the night shelter providing a listening ear, collecting surplus food from supermarkets, providing support for clients moving into their own accommodation, sorting donated goods and helping at fundraising events
