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

If you would like to contribute Food or other necessary items to be used within DENS' services there is a box right at the front of church that you can place items in and we will deliver them to DENS.
