Our aim is to be the first port of call for people in Dacorum who are facing homelessness, poverty and social exclusion; to support and empower them to take the next positive step in their lives.
We ensure individuals have access to temporary and short-term accommodation, and individuals and families have access to emergency food and provisions.
