Read our 2014 Impact Report

A year of planned strategic growth means that we now support more people than ever before, at a time when there is increasing demand for our services.

All this positive progress was achieved against a backdrop of economic recession and increasing pressure on our services.

We provided better services, for lower costs and continue to seek ways of achieving our goals more efficiently and effectively.

Offering direct support to the socially excluded

At its foundation, Julian House was set up to offer direct support to some of the most marginalised people in society – the homeless. Initially this was limited to offering food and shelter. Over time other projects and services have been developed which not only address the symptoms of homelessness but also the underlying reasons why men and women are forced onto the streets. Indeed, projects such as the Meaningful Occupation Programmes and our social enterprises are targeted at preventing people becoming homeless by engaging them in meaningful activities, training and preparation for employment.

We operate more than 20 different projects, accommodation sites and social enterprises in Bath, Bristol and Wiltshire. These include;

  • A range of homeless services
  • Support for those suffering domestic violence
  • Addiction recovery
  • Individuals with learning difficulties
  • Work experience and training

These services aren’t just changing lives – they are saving lives.

The work is often challenging and our staff and volunteers work under considerable pressure to achieve incredible outcomes.

Looking to partner and support other organisations

We recognise the  challenging climate that we are all working in and that the voluntary sector has to work harder and more collaboratively than ever to sustain itself and, indeed, thrive.

We welcome dialogue around how we can work with other organisations, both formally and informally, to strengthen the sector and sustain high quality services to clients.
