Dacorum Community Trust (DCT) is a small, well established local charity devoted to helping local people in crisis when they have nowhere else to turn to. Based at the Forum, DCT is at the heart of the community working with the local statutory and voluntary sector to support some of our most vulnerable neighbours.
With approximately 400 cases annually, clients often present with complex problems including domestic violence, homelessness, debt, physical and mental illness, universal credit benefit delays and other extreme poverty.
DCT provides a range of practical support, including beds, cookers, fridges, children’s equipment, bedding and kitchen starter packs and emergency energy vouchers.
As an independent charity, DCT is unique in that we can respond immediately to a crisis and the impact is often life-changing. For instance, we recently purchased a bed for a client with severe mental health needs who had not slept in a bed for 17 years.
All funds raised by DCT are spent locally.View All Ambassadors
