We were delighted to welcome Sue Mountstevens, Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner to Julian House on Monday 10th September. Following a tour of our homeless hostel at Manvers Street; Sue then visited our Bath Bike Workshop and heard about the training, volunteering and employment support available to vulnerable people. Sue found out more about the accommodation and support we provide to victims of domestic abuse and their children and our work with ex-offenders and rough sleepers.
Sue said: “It was great to hear in more detail about the excellent support provided to people by Julian House. The charity offers hope where there is often none. They work with people with complex needs and help them move towards living on their own. The staff at Julian House are passionate about what they do and care for those they support.”
Roanne Wootten, Operations Director, said: “It was great to show Sue around some of our services and give a current picture of the challenges faced by our clients who often experience multiple and complex needs. Julian House work with a wide range of people who are often excluded from society following family breakdown, childhood trauma and homelessness. The charity offers the opportunity to recover and become part of the community”.
