ABOUT STEP BY STEP

At Step by Step we passionately believe in supporting local young people who are going through hard times. We take a unique step by step approach, providing accommodation, personal development opportunities, and specialist support services. Our approach helps young people to identify and fulfil their aspirations.

Excellence in all we do. Teamwork through successful collaborations and partnerships. Honesty and openness. Ownership of our work, words, and actions. Strength by building courage and resilience.

It is our vision for every young person facing adversity, including homelessness, to realise their aspirations and reach their full potential.
