The Community Partnerships and Wellbeing team is committed to ensuring that Dacorum residents and communities have opportunities to thrive, improve their mental and physical wellbeing and come together to build resilience. Dacorum borough is an exciting and beautiful place to live, and the team wants to celebrate what is already happening, as well as support new and exciting activities and projects for residents and groups to get involved with.
Active Dacorum is an initiative run by the Community Partnerships team. Our main focus areas are sport and physical activity, wellbeing and arts and culture. We provide opportunities for our residents through events, activities, community initiatives and much more.
The Healthy Hub Dacorum is a one-stop shop for residents, aiming to provide guidance on the services that will support your health and wellbeing needs. The hub will help people on a variety of issues, such as mental health, weight management, financial or housing advice and family conflict.

Grants and funding
The Community Grants scheme is aimed at community groups and voluntary organisations who are looking for funding to deliver projects to benefit Dacorum residents. In addition to Community Grants, we also support our local voluntary and community sector by signposting to other funding opportunities.
Supporting the voluntary sector
We commission several organisations to support the voluntary sector to benefit Dacorum residents - Citizens Advice Dacorum, Age UK Dacorum, Community Action Dacorum, Relate and Mediation Herts.
Supporting the Armed Forces
In 2011, we signed the Hertfordshire Community Covenant to demonstrate our commitment to providing our armed forces community with guidance and support when it is required. Support is shown for the armed forces at the annual Dacorum Armed Forces Day event in June, as well as through housing and information.
Equalities, diversity and inclusion calendar
We're proud to launch our first Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion Calendar (PDF 6.5MB), produced in partnership with Diversiton.
It provides important dates including holy days, religious festivals, health and wellbeing awareness days, special events and bank holidays.
The calendar highlights important themes around inclusion with a special focus for each month, as well as a monthly quote and lunar cycles.
Our calendar has been designed and produced in a format that allows universal access so that content can be used by as many people as possible, including people with disabilities or vision impairment. It makes it easier for people with disabilities to access the calendar with the aid of assistive technology software and devices such as screen magnifiers, screen readers, speech-recognition software, text-to-speech software, alternative input devices and refreshable Braille displays.
If you feel that we’ve missed any awareness or celebration dates in the calendar, then please email your suggestion to email@example.com.
