How You Can Help Us
There are times in all our lives when things don’t go as planned…
This could be the loss of job, becoming homeless, suffering a serious illness, a relationship or personal breakdown, or a difficult financial situation where you feel that you have nowhere else to turn.
We all know someone who has struggled and needed a little help to get them back on their feet, and we’re the local charity that can help to relieve the pressure.
Helping our neighbours when life gets a little tough can be very rewarding. The Trust is delighted to accept personal donations from people in the local community and from local organisations. We all want to be good neighbours, showing kindness, decency and sharing what we have. You can donate here »
Why not make Dacorum Community Trust your charity of the year? Fundraise for us, supply goods or services to help us help our clients – your neighbours. We’d love to hear from you so do get in touch.
If you have a few hours spare and would like to make a difference to people in our community who are suffering a crisis, please get in touch. We are always looking for local people who can help us with our community fundraising events and during busy times. If you think you can help, please get in touch.
Here are some volunteer stories to whet your appetite!
“I joined Dacorum Community Trust as a volunteer 12 years ago when I took early retirement. I have enjoyed every moment of being part of this great team and being able to help the people of Dacorum and love to feel that I am giving something back. Some of the decisions we have to make are really hard, but there is always the support of the team to discuss things with, and the best part is the pleasure, and often sheer relief, that the clients share when they have been helped and listened to. It has been a privilege to be part of the team at Dacorum Community Trust as we continue to support the people of Dacorum.”
“I started volunteering at Dacorum Community Trust some months ago. I have found the experience highly enjoyable. Helping people from diverse backgrounds is not something that I would have had the opportunity to do in my usual work. I have gained insight into the problems faced by local people who are in crisis and have nowhere else to turn to for practical help. Seeing the difference our help makes in their lives first-hand has been very rewarding. On a personal level, interacting with the team in a modern office environment using email, spreadsheets and word processing has helped restore my confidence and self-esteem following a period of social isolation.”
