About Us

Julian House is a charity that supports vulnerable and at-risk individuals. These include men, women and young people experiencing homelessness, women and children escaping domestic abuse, adults with learning difficulties and people who need support after leaving prison.

“Every year, we support over 1,400 vulnerable individuals.”

We operate more than 40 different projects, accommodation sites and social enterprises across South West England. These include our homeless outreach services, a 20-bed emergency access hostel, various supported accommodation sites, a domestic abuse refuge for up to 17 women (or men) and 24 children and an 8-bed property for adults with Autism or Asperger’s.

We also run multiple training programmes (including at our bike workshops in Bath, Bristol and Trowbridge) to help people regain confidence, learn new transferable work skills, get back into education, volunteering and employment.

“Our projects not only address the symptoms of homelessness but also the underlying reasons why men and women are forced onto the streets.”

Our aim

We seek to build a just society where socially excluded people are supported and empowered to build sustainable, independent lives.

Our services include:

· Homeless services & support including our emergency 20 bed hostel, outreach teams and supported move on accommodation,

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.
