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 a our social enterprises are targeted at preventing people becoming homeless by engaging them in meaningful activities, training and preparation for employment.

Take a look at our 2018 Impact Report to see the effect our work is having.

We operate more than 40 different projects, accommodation sites and social enterprises across the south west. These include;

  • A range of homeless services
  • Support for those suffering domestic violence
  • Addiction recovery
  • Individuals with learning difficulties
  • Support for travelling communities
  • Criminal justice services
  • 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.
