We work with disadvantaged people and those who need a bit of extra help to be able to live independently

We run services across the West of England to help people turn their lives around

What we do

Over 5,000 people supported by our services every year

Our Impact

Get Help

We offer a range of specialist services in Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol, Wiltshire, South Gloucestershire and Somerset.


Help Us

Volunteers add real value to DHI and whatever the role, you could help us to reach out to even more people in the community and their families. Without volunteers, our impact on social exclusion would not be as successful.

Become a volunteer

You can also support DHI by fundraising
 and donating directly.
