1625 Independent People
1625 Independent People supports young people aged 16 – 25 who are at risk of becoming homeless or are already homeless. They have four offices, over 100 staff and support up to 500 young people at any given time, about 2,500 annually. Service include:
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).
They 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
The 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 Peer Education
The Upfront Peer Education Projects train young people who have experienced homelessness and/or experienced financial difficulty to run workshops in schools and youth settings to prevent youth homeless and help young people build independent living skills.
Ask Us is a partnership project between 1625ip, ABLC and Citizens Advice to help young people to access local advice services, understand their rights and work towards independence.
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
1625 works across Bristol City Council Youth Services offering peer support (young person to young person) and advice about homelessness.
