Since Julian House was founded in 1987, we’ve always looked to do more to address local needs and tackle the root causes of our clients’ issues.
This has led to the appearance of specialist supported housing services, innovative social enterprises and outreach teams working on the streets. It has also led geographical expansion, as we find areas of unmet need around us.
We’ve been in Bristol since 2013, running an addiction recovery service, community rehabilitation programmes and a social enterprises. These help clients whose backgrounds include institutional care, homelessness, mental health issues, addictions and long term unemployment.
The Julian Trust, another local charity, also operates in Bristol and has done since 1986. It runs a busy hostel for single homeless men and women. The similarity in our organisations names (Julian House/Julian Trust) has caused some confusion – something which we are keen to avoid.
This is why Julian House is changing its name in the city.
See Change is a bold statement of what we aim to achieve in all that we do for our clients.
This new name in Bristol will make no material difference to the services which we provide. Julian House will be the ‘group name’ for the organisation and as such will always be credited on publications and publicity materials.
