Trowbridge residents, particularly those who like to get on their bike, will most likely be aware of two locations in Trowbridge associated with Bath-based charity Julian House – one is the Bike Workshop in Duke Street, and The Shires shopping centre is home to the organisation’s charity shop. But there’s so much more . . .
Julian House is a charity that supports vulnerable and at-risk individuals. These include men, women and young people experiencing homelessness, men, women and children escaping domestic abuse, adults with learning difficulties and people who need support after leaving prison.
Operating more than 40 different projects, accommodation sites and social enterprises across South West England, included are homeless outreach services, a 20-bed emergency access hostel, various supported accommodation sites, a domestic abuse refuge for up to 17 women (or men) and 24 children and an 8-bed property for adults with Autism or Asperger’s.
The charity also runs multiple training programmes (including at the bike workshop in Trowbridge) to help people regain confidence, learn new transferable work skills, get back into education, volunteering and employment. Click here for much more information on Julian House.
The friendly knowledgeable staff at the Duke Street workshop can help cyclists with all of their needs. There’s a great team of experienced mechanics and the workshop offers parts and accessories, service and repairs, refurbished bikes finished to the highest standards and new bikes from leading manufacturers.
