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.
These are just some of the projects operated by Julian House:
• Night Shelter and Day Centre
A direct access facility with 20 beds that operates 365 days a year. Breakfast, an evening meal and access to shower and laundry facilities are provided as well as advice and support on welfare, benefit, housing and other issues.
• Barnabas House
A supported housing project where clients can adjust to the demands of independent living after the chaos of homelessness and rough sleeping. Staff assist with client led resettlement programmes and other targeted support.
• Peter House
A joint venture between Julian House; Probation; the Community Drugs and Safety Partnership; the Police; and Somer Community Housing Trust. Peter House provides targeted support to up to 5 priority/prolific offenders who would ordinarily be homeless on leaving prison.
