Here’s what some of our charity members say about us:

“As a local charity being part of Connect Dacorum has increased our awareness of and brought us closer to the local community. Having the opportunity to meet so many supportive businesses at the well organised networking events has helped us to build new relationships, providing fundraising opportunities and valuable business advice that we otherwise would not have been able to benefit from.”

Karen Gosen, Trustee & Volunteer, Gaddesden Place RDA

“Druglink believes Connect Dacorum is the ideal forum for any business looking to contribute and be involved in the voluntary sector in Dacorum. As a member, Druglink has been involved in a number of different activities such as the Dragons Apprentice scheme and delivering awareness sessions to staff teams which has enabled us to build strong partnerships in Dacorum, something that would have been difficult without the help of the Connect Dacorum team. We would recommend membership to any business or organisation looking to create and expand their connections with a sector that needs your support!”

Sarah Clark, Joint CEO, Druglink

“The Box Moor Trust is a 400-year-old charity that protects precious local greenspace, provides outdoor environmental education for thousands of children and pays grants that contribute to the wellbeing of Hemel Hempstead and Bovingdon residents. We value our membership of Connect Dacorum because of the opportunities to network with potential partners and to understand how the needs of our beneficiaries are changing.”
