What unites them,however, is that they are all excluded, in one way or another,rom playing a ull part in society. They may suer rom anxietyor depression, be dependent on drugs or alcohol, havelearning difculties or simply be one o the vast and growingnumber o unemployed.Everyone who comes to DHI can be supported in some way.Many will recover to lead a ull and independent lie. Forexample, or the unemployed, DHI can help with training andengaging ormer clients as apprentices.However, those who work at DHI know only too well thatcharities such as ours can only oer palliative care. Asthe Government imposes an age o austerity, as massunemployment becomes a eature o our national lie and asthe support o the welare state is allowed to disintegrate,the demands on charities will mount.It is important that DHI helps as many people as possible.It is even more important that we remember that the realdemand is that we, through the state, which should reect ourcommon aspirations, put in place an economic system whichdoes not lead to the impoverishment, alienation and despairo so many o its citizens.

DHI now provides awider range o services or socially excludedgroups; supporting people to tackle and breakdown the barriers to active engagement in their owncommunity and to achieve greater independence andchoice within their own lives.These barriers to inclusion come in all orms andguises. This is why DHI works with a wide range o client groups including people who are homelessor vulnerably housed, seeking support to overcomedrug or alcohol misuse or mental ill health or who areexcluded through physical or sensory impairment,learning difculty or age. In this difcult and changingeconomic environment it is clear that the services thatDHI and our partners provide are essential to supportpeople to secure accommodation or themselves andtheir amilies, to develop skills to fnd and maintainemployment and to achieverecovery rom mental ill health ordrug or alcohol misuse.In order to ensure thatDHI continues to reach outinto our local communities wehave expanded the servicewe oer; rom Hubs oeringinormation, advice and a rangeo complementary services to all,to the single point o entry contactor people wishing to access drugand alcohol treatment services inBath and North East Somerset. Wehave also expanded our provisiono housing and advice to include a new service inSomerset supporting amilies and teenage parentsto access and maintain a home, and a larger oatingsupport service in B&NES.Access to education, training and employmentis an important tool in tackling social exclusion andwe are proud that we have been able to developa series o apprenticeships within our services toprovide opportunities or employment. In the currentchallenging economic environment DHI has alsosuccessully launched two social enterprise schemesoering employment and volunteering opportunitiesor service users to manage and run a mobile phonerecycling scheme and a Market Stall and VegetableBox scheme at the Green Park market in Bath.Throughout this review you will read some o thepersonal histories o service users who have achievedtheir goals with the support o DHI.
