A just society where socially excluded people are supported and empowered to build sustainable, independent lives.
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 social enterprises are targeted at preventing people becoming homeless by engaging them in meaningful activities, training and preparation for employment.
They 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 staff and volunteers work under considerable pressure to achieve incredible outcomesSee more
