DHF works locally, regionally and nationally. Through various committees and specialised constituencies, we apply our position in many different contexts.

Local Branches
DHF’s local branches constitute the backbone of the association. They represent the members locally, where enthusiastic volunteers arrange a large number of events and cosy gatherings, where you as a member can come and have a chat with others, who are in the same situation as yourself. In short, the local branches form a network for the members of DHF.

A network of specialised knowledge
The specialised constituencies and groups represent the diagnostic-specific interest care. DHF does not engage in diagnoses or specific disabilities as such. Nevertheless, we accommodate members, who may have an interest or need for specialised knowledge of the challenges they face. For this reason, DHF has set up 4 specialised constituencies that do just that.

The 4 specialised constituencies are; Forældrekredsen (the parental constituency), Ungdomskredsen (the Youth constituency), Amputationskredsen (the constituency for amputees) and RYK – a group for the spinal cord injured in Denmark. In addition to the four specialised constituencies, DHF also provides access to networks and groups, where members can meet like-minded people and discuss the specific challenges they face.

DHF is represented in all of Denmark’s five regions, where locally elected leaders take responsibility at the regional level. The regional representatives’ primary task is to support the work of the local branches across the region, as well as working towards creating events across the region's local branches. Each region is represented at DHF’s Board of Directors.

The committees in DHF work nationwide and offer assistance to both members and professionals, who need guidance and advice on e.g. physical accessibility or disability policy initiatives.
