Southside Family Project
Please jump for Southside because we can\'t change the lives of children, young people and adults facing multiple and complex difficulties in their lives without the kind support of people like you.
Southside helps individuals and families affected by trauma caused by loss, abuse, violence or neglect. Your support will help them to find the safety, resilience, wellbeing, relationships, connections and identity they need.
Southside has a strong track record over twenty years supporting children, young people and families across Bath and North East Somerset. We are based in Twerton, in the heart of the community. Twerton is a hidden pocket of need in Bath with two areas in the 10% most deprived areas in the country and two in the 20% most deprived (Indices of Multiple Deprivation, 2019).
Southside provides crisis and ongoing support for people experiencing domestic abuse, counselling, community hub groups with children’s play, whole family support, a therapeutic play service, volunteering programmes, training for professionals and work closely with other local charities and agencies. Our work is trauma-informed, therapeutically focused and empowers local people to help others in their communities through peer support and using their lived experience as expertise.
