Full Description of Organisation

Southside supports individuals and families living in Bath and North East Somerset to make positive changes in their lives. Rooted in the heart of the communities we have served since 1997, Southside strives to reduce social isolation and to build strong, resilient communities.


Southside is there for you whether you are grappling with problems such as domestic abuse, substance abuse, mental health difficulties; or problems with finance and debt, housing issues or concerns related to education and employment.


We don’t have a magic wand - but based on an assessment of your needs we can provide a wide range of specific services that aim to give you the tools to make positive change in your life and that of your family.


Southside began in 1997 with a team of two. Over twenty years later the team has grown to over fifty staff & volunteers, based at Meade House on Bath’s Whiteway Estate. Our services reach out to individuals and families all over the Bath and North East Somerset region.

Vision

Southside’s vision is to provide accessible support services that excel. All our services are based in the communities in which we work and reflect the values of those communities.  Children, young people and their families are at the heart of the work we do.

Easy-to-Reach Services

Our services are easy-to-reach because they have been developed over many decades with children, young people and families — and collaboratively with health providers, police, housing, education services and Bath and North East Somerset council.

Our Approach

We take an evidenced-based, psychologically informed approach to our work. Rather than imposing our knowledge on children and families to achieve positive change, we combine it with the family’s expertise. We work respectfully with whole families to help them to overcome their difficulties and to build resilience. We are very proud to say that over 50% of our paid staff were once service users.
