DHI runs a Recovery Hub in Midsomer Norton, a building that houses a variety of services that we and other organisations run in order to offer a full service to local people who need support. The Hub is partly funded by Bath & North East Somerset Council.
Our Reach Support Service provides practical and emotional support to people who have difficulties with their accommodation, or who may be homeless or at risk of homelessness. The service helps people to live independently and develop useful life skills. More information on Reach.
The Hub offers a range of other services:
- DHI and the Specialist Drug and Alcohol Services organisation offer services for people with alcohol or drug problems, including counselling, group sessions, psychological therapies, advice and information, prescribing services and support for families and carers.
- The Clean Slate Training & Employment organisation finds temporary and permanent jobs for long-term unemployed people who may have a history of homelessness, mental ill-health, offending, or drug or alcohol misuse.
- Project 28 helps young people in B&NES who have drug issues.
- DHI's advice and information and money management services help people budget and deal with debt issues, withe the help of the Credit Union organisation.
The Rural Recovery Hub is open from 9am-4:30pm from Monday and Friday (to 5pm on Tuesdays). People looking for help can drop in at the Hub or make contact by ringing 01761 419086. The service is free and confidential and open to people who live in Bath and North East Somerset.
