DHU operates as a not-for profit community interest company (CIC). A community interest company (or CIC) is a special form of non-charitable limited company, which exists primarily to benefit a community or with a view to pursuing a social purpose, rather than to make a profit for shareholders.

Through Social Enterprise Mark, the leading international accreditor of social enterprises, we have proven ourselves to be a business which primarily benefits people over profits.

The Social Enterprise Mark is externally assessed and internationally recognised, and provides an independent guarantee that an organisation has met sector-agreed criteria and is operating as a genuine social enterprise, committed to creating positive social change.

It provides clear standards for the social enterprise sector, defining what it means to be a genuine social enterprise.
