Julian House is a charity based in the South West of England, who support homeless and excluded people to live independent lives.
Many of the people they help have faced cold and frightening nights sleeping rough on the streets, or are at risk of homelessness. Thanks to the support of the local community, Julian House has been able to develop projects and services which not address the symptoms of homelessness, but also the underlying reasons why men and women are forced onto the streets. These often include domestic abuse, mental health, physical health needs, offending, substance misuse & long term unemployment.
They run over 20 projects, social enterprises, and accommodation sites and projects in Bath, Bristol, Wiltshire and Devon which include its emergency hostel in Bath, providing 29 emergency access beds for rough sleepers, assertive outreach and personalised support.
The charity also runs supported accommodation sites which are equipped to support people with a number of issues aside from just being homeless, including Henrietta House, which offers accommodation for those who have diagnosed as being on this autistic spectrum. Julian House also runs the women’s refuges in Bath, providing safe accommodation and support for women and their children who are fleeing from domestic violence.
Julian House is committed to empowering their service users to develop their skills, resilience & independence to rebuild a future for themselves and their families. Social Enterprises such as the Bike Workshops in Bath, Trowbridge, Bristol & Exeter offer practical work experience and training for both the homeless and long term unemployed.
With your donation, they can continue to support homeless people not only to have a bed to sleep in for the night but also with continued support in housing, reconnecting with family, help with addiction problems and much more.
