Good Start Fund

The Good Start fund ensures Outreach Workers are well resourced to deliver on their promises.  The donated funds are specifically for use with people who are rough sleeping to help them come off the streets and move on – for good.  Whether it is something short term or a slightly bigger need, such as turning their room into a home, Good Start funding is there for anyone who has slept rough in Bath and North East Somerset.

The Good Start fund is also open to other local agencies who are providing direct support to named individuals. All referrals need to be completed by a Support Worker on behalf of their client and the client must be a Julian House/DHI verified ex-rough sleeper within the B&NES area.

Examples of support are:

  • Items for home
  • Identification
  • Welcome packs/Toiletries
  • New bedding
  • White goods
  • Furniture
  • A new bed for a pet
