We are Southside


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.
