Independent People is the leading provider of housing, support and advice to young people aged between 16 and 25 in Bristol and South Gloucestershire.

We exist to support young people to build independent lives. We do this by helping people find (and keep) a safe, stable home. We also offer non-judgmental support and advice on counselling, training and help finding jobs. No other organisation in the area has the same wealth of experience and resources.
