Accommodation

Overview

Julian House provides real opportunity and support to people wanting to move away from rough sleeping.

Julian House have accommodation projects which cover a wide spectrum of need.

From medium level of support for up to two years with staff both on and off site, to a high support housing project.

We have experience of working with people with a variety of needs, including substance misuse, offending behaviour, mental health and learning difficulties.

What we do

Rough Sleepers

We provide 29 beds including 20 at our 24 hour service, Manvers Street with a drop-in centre and specialist joint outreach service under the government led No Second Night Out initiative.

We ensure that rough sleepers have a pathway out of rough sleeping, providing a Comprehensive Holistic Assessment leading to a Single Service Offer. This involves a tailored support package including supported access into the private rented sector, hostels, reconnecting with family and social networks amongst other person centred solutions.

Offender Specific

Peter House - Temporary accommodation for ex offenders with medium to low support needs. Work towards independence by addressing offending, assessing support needs, developing life skills and confidence. 

Supported Housing

Julian House works across a broad spectrum of need. We are able to offer 10 beds in a high support housing project in Bath for people with Low Level Mental Health problems and/or Learning Difficulties. 

We promote clients’ right to a personal budget and support its use, putting the client at the centre of what we do ensuring that the client has enough information to make an informed choice within a supportive decision making process.

Barnabas House offers a medium level of support for up to two years with staff support both on and off site including on-call out of hours where those who have needs such as mental health, substance misuse, offending and physical health can receive support to address those difficulties that have prevented independent living in the past.

We have an excellent resettlement rate and our clients report to us that they have felt that we have looked at them as a whole person and motivated them to make changes that they have only ever contemplated in the past.

Education, training and employment

Overview

What we do

We encourage clients to make meaningful use of their time. This could be exploring existing talents which have not been utilised for many years, volunteering or trying something new.

Space2 is our Meaningful Occupation Project where we provide a range of activities such as:

  • Practical food Hygiene, 
  • Computer courses, 
  • Sporting activities and 
  • Literacy/numeracy skills. 


We work closely with City of Bath College and Bath YMCA to provide opportunities to our clients who are often socially excluded and use the outreach sessions to build confidence and move into mainstream services.

We work with people to produce an in-depth assessment of their needs in relation to education, training and employment. The end result is a clear plan detailing what the client wants to achieve and the steps to be taken to reach these realistic and achievable goals.

Whilst working with our partners, we also ensure that we provide in-house opportunities such as

  • volunteering at all of our projects, 
  • maintenance support, 
  • painting/decorating 
  • positively target ex-service users when paid opportunities become available within the organisation. 
  • apprentices are employed within the organisation who have a background in homelessness.

Bike Workshop 

There is also an opportunity to attend a bike maintenance course in Bath and now in Bristol which gives knowledge and experience of;

  • handling tools,
  • health & safety,
  • workplace risk assessment,
  • working as part of a team,
  • maintaining and building a bike which you will be given upon
    completion of the course.

This course runs for 6 weeks starting on a Tuesday.
