Supporting people to independence
Julian Housing is all about change! We provide supported second stage housing in the community. Our services are designed for people aged 22+ who are currently or have been homeless, and are ready to make a positive change to their lives.
I feel that Julian Housing has given me my life back and a chance to be happy again.

Our aim is to help men and women living at Julian Housing to increase their skills and improve their circumstances over, on average, a 12-month period before moving on with the confidence and ability to live independently and manage their own home and tenancy.
Julian Housing does not offer permanent accommodation. The maximum stay is two years, and so people need to be ready, willing and able to work through the changes necessary to prepare for independent living within this time-frame. Once someone is ready to move on to their own home, we offer support with both the move itself and the initial settling-in process.
Typical options for moving on include the Private Rented Sector, social housing (Council or Housing Association) or other, more specialist supported housing such as a rehabilitation programme.
Here you learn to accept and live with other people and yourself!
