What We Do

Housing is just the tip of the iceberg of what we do. We run a number of specialist projects and services to help young people in different ways. We also offer housing advice.

Supported Housing

Our Bristol Supported Housing and South Gloucestershire Supported Housing teams support young people who live in shared houses or self-contained flats which we manage (we are their landlord).


Floating Support

We have Floating Support Teams in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.
Floating Support is when a young person is not living in one of our properties, for example another housing association or the council, and they need some help to manage on their own.


Live-in Supported Housing

Bristol based emergency, temporary, live-in housing for 16-25 year olds.


Future for Me Project

The Future 4 Me team work across the South West helping young people to resettle in the community after leaving custody or care.


Service User Involvement

Our in-house training programme gives young people we support the chance to learn transferable skills, run events and get experience in an office environment.


Upfront Project

The Upfront Peer Education Project trains young people who have experienced homelessness to run workshops in schools and youth clubs about the realities of homelessness.


Cash Pointers Project

The Cash Pointers project works with young people who are living in social housing across the South West, to improve how they manage their money.


Bristol Youth Links

We work across Bristol City Council Youth Services offering peer support (young person to young person) and advice about homelessness.
