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.


Bristol Youth MAPS

Bristol Youth MAPS is a homelessness prevention service, working with young people who present as homeless or at risk of homelessness to help them remain in or return to their family home where it is safe to do so.

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).

Live-in Supported Housing

Bristol and South Gloucestershire based temporary supported housing for 16-25 year olds, with 24/7 staff support.

Floating Support

We have a Floating Support Teams in 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.

Supported Lodgings

Our supported lodgings scheme in South Glos provides supported accommodation in a private house, with a trained host.

Future 4 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.


Andrews Charitable Trust (ACT) and Andrews Property Group, in partnership with 1625ip, give young care leavers an affordable roof over their heads and support in finding work and becoming independent.

Cash Pointers' Toolkit

Cash Pointers is a project that helped young people learn about financial capability, which resulted in a helpful Cash Pointers Toolkit.  It is an essentials guide that any support worker can use with young person.

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.

Future Builders

Our innovative new Future Builders project works in collaboration with the OVO Foundation, SGS College and Bristol City Council to support young people aged 16-24 interested in working in the construction industry.

Ask Us

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.

Wellbeing Service

If you are under 18, this service provides a safe place for you to talk and be listened to. By supporting you to set achievable goals, we can support you to make positive changes and improve your wellbeing.

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.
