We believe that people who are homeless and socially excluded have something to offer. We encourage people to use their skills to change themselves – and change the world.
We know that overcoming homelessness often means more than a roof over your head. That’s why we support people to work their way out of homelessness, providing meaningful work as well as a stable home for as long as someone needs it.
We also encourage the people we support to look outside of themselves and work in or with projects to help others in the neighbourhood, and much further afield. Find out more about our work here.
We have several shops across Bristol selling all manner of preloved goods, from furniture, bric-a-brac, records, books and clothes to safety tested electrical goods. We also sell specialist and collectable items in our eBay Shop.
We take donations of items that are in good reusable condition and our vans can collect and deliver goods that are too large for you to transport. We also offer house clearances at competitive prices. Find out how to donate here.
At Backfields House we also have a business incubator which we set up with the help of funding from the European Regional Development Fund to help unemployed and other socially disadvantaged people set up their own businesses.
