Developing Health and Independence (formerly known as the Drugs and Homeless Initiative) is a local charity that was set up in 1999 to help people out of the cycle of homelessness, social isolation and drug or alcohol abuse. Our aim is to offer people a wide range of services that help them gain control of their lives again and live independently. During that time DHI have helped thousands of people to build a better future. We work in Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Swindon, Wiltshire, and Somerset.

One of our strengths is being able to respond to our clients' needs by offering a tailored programme from a range of practical and emotional support services. DHI deals not only with the health and emotional well being of our clients, but also with practical issues such as housing, social isolation, and lack of basic education and employable skills. DHI now offer a range of specialist services in Bath and North East Somerset, Mendip, Wiltshire and South Gloucestershire, including: advice, outreach, day care, group sessions, counselling, resettlement, supported housing, criminal justice Services, aftercare, alternative therapies, employment services and social enterprise schemes.
