Members of the public are often motivated to offer some sort of direct support to people that they see on the street. However, they may be apprehensive about handing over money – concerned that it may not be used for wholesome purposes. Julian House vouchers are a great alternative. These are available in 50p denominations and only be used for food or night rent (£3) at the Julian House facilities in Manvers St. They can also be used for meals at The Genesis Trust projects in the city.
The other significant benefit is that they can sometimes ‘force’ some of the most disconnected (and vulnerable) individuals to engage with the very organisations which are best placed to assist them.
Vouchers can be purchased at the Julian House hostel on Manvers Street, the charity shops in Walcot St & Moorland Rd, our admin office on New King Street as well as at the B&NES One Stop Shop on Manvers St (opposite Police Station). A minimum purchase of £5 is suggested.
