Community projects (Social)
Julian House operates more than 20 different projects, accommodation sites and social enterprises in Bath, Bristol and Wiltshire. These include: a range of homeless services; support for those suffering domestic violence; addiction recovery; support for individuals with learning difficulties; work experience and training. The charity also helps to coordinate a rough sleeper reporting helpline in Bath & NES, Wiltshire, Swindon, Somerset and North Somerset. When the opportunity arose to purchase a property they were leasing in the centre of Bath, Julian House approached Triodos Bank because they were looking for an ethical lender to fit with their mission.
We intend to empower people and support the personal development of disadvantaged individuals, by financing businesses that address specific social objectives. Lending in this sector is to for and not-for-profit employment programmes, youth help centres and integration programmes, among others.
