1625 has a strong structure in place to allow monitoring, reporting and evaluation of our impact.

We measure our impact in accommodation, financial capability, education, employment and training, health and wellbeing, relationship building, positive contribution.

We contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and use this framework to link our activities to the broader social agenda, and therefore integrating sustainability within our strategy.
1625ip is aligned to five of the UN Sustainable Development Goals:

  • No Poverty
  • Good Health and Well being
  • Quality Education
  • Decent Work and Economic Growth
  • Sustainable Cities and Communities






In the past year, 1625’s services were accessed by a total of 1,654 young people. As we celebrate our 40th year, we are excited to announce significant growth in the ways we support young people. We have joined with the Youth Education Service and successfully launched Reboot West 3. Additionally, thanks to National Lottery players, National Heritage Fund and Historic England, The Kingsley Hall Heritage Project is set to transform our main base into a vibrant and inclusive space for young people and the community.



1625’s services were accessed by 1,642 over the last year. We have continued supporting more young people to rebuild their lives, opening Charles England House. It’s seen the return of in-person Sleep Out, and completing our application to the national lottery for our largest development yet.



Take a look through a summary of the past year, we opened a new 18 bed supported housing project in Yate, providing much-needed accommodation for care leavers and young homeless people. We also secured funding to continue our project, Reboot West in supporting young care leavers.
