BYPA is a service for vulnerable parents in Bristol. It offers 36 units of accommodation for couples and single parents in Southmead, Easton and Knowle. We also offer a floating support service to residents, helping them through their journey to independent living and preventing homelessness.
All residents and floating support service users will be allocated a Support Worker and develop a support plan, enabling them to progress towards more independent living in the future. We are committed to recognising the specific housing-related support needs of parents and tailoring our services accordingly.
To speak to a trained member of the Places for People BYPA team, you can call the BYPA helpline number on 0117 9559792.
The Gloucester Young Parents service is primarily for parents aged 16 – 21. Like the residents at BYPA, you will be allocated a Support Worker and develop a personal support plan. Residents are expected to stay for up to 12 months, but some stay for a shorter period depending on their circumstances.
Referrals to the Gloucester Young Parents service are made by Gloucestershire County Council. Gloucestershire County Council’s Housing Advice Team can be contacted on 01452 396396.

"From being homeless to where I am now has really changed my life... They have helped me really learn how to be a good parent... I want to be able to start working again and lead a better life. It's made me a stronger person than I used to be. This whole place just means everything to me"
