Dansk Handicap Forbund

For generations, Dansk Handicap Forbund (the Danish Association of the Physically Disabled) has worked for a life with equal opportunities for all people with physical disabilities in Denmark.

Dansk Handicap Forbund (DHF) is a nationwide organisation, which is governed by its members.

We are headquartered in Taastrup, Denmark, and we have more than 40 local branches and 4 specialised constituencies. In addition, the association is represented on a number of councils and boards.

We are the accommodating association for all people with physical disabilities. We are their necessary voice and persistent watchdog, their competent advisor and supervisor, and a respected counterpart and sparring partner to the authorities.

DHF is part of the Danish disability movement and we co-operate both locally, nationally and globally. We believe in the strength and opportunities of the community. We are proud of our traditions and we evolve concurrently with time and members, as we have done since 1925.

Our vision
Our vision is to create networks and establish ties between people with disabilities - to strengthen the members’ sense of community. We want to be a leader within compensation and rights, and we want to be the leading organisation within the area of accessibility.

DHF is the indispensable association for both children, younger and older people with mobility disabilities in Denmark, and we work every day to extend the knowledge of our work among all relevant parties, existing and future members.

The Association represents persons with physical disabilities in Denmark. According to figures from VIVE - The National Research Centre for Welfare, about one third of the 16 to 64-age group consider that they have a physical disability. Of these, about half estimate that they have a physical disability, so DHF’s promotion of interest exceeds far more than the current 8,300 members of the association.
