CORPORATE PARTNERSHIPS: HELPING TO EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE & PREVENT YOUTH HOMELESSNESS
We work alongside a wide range of companies to develop outstanding mutually-beneficial partnerships. Our dedicated corporate partnerships manager will work with you to create a bespoke package to suit your CSR and engagement goals. We help motivate your team, close a sale, and develop the value of your brand.
Young people are our future workforce and with your help, we can enable more young people to become thriving members of the community. Unemployment rates are three times higher for 16-25 year olds compared with the rest of the population. With our range of education and employment services, 78% of the young people we support become work ready.
We make it simple and easy to for you to make social impact. For every £1 invested in to our work, we generate £5.60 in social value for the community. Your donations will be working hard to support local young people who are going through hard times.
You will be given impact reports to show you where your donations are and case studies which can be shared with your colleagues.
Our transformative work wouldn’t be possible without the extraordinary generosity of our work-based partners. Corporate Social Responsibility partnerships are a fantastic opportunity to make real impact for local young people facing homelessness.

The FatFace Foundation are very proud to support Step by Step which makes such a big difference to young people when they really need it. Our mission is to “change people’s lives wherever FatFace goes”. We are focusing on the overall wellbeing of people, starting with the base level support of food, shelter, clothing and then on to create opportunities for people to reach their full potential. We plan to support Step by Step with clothing and job opportunities for the young people and some financial support for the organisation.

No Fear Bridge recognises that young people between the ages of 16 – 25 are at a critical stage in their lives. They are forming their sense of who they are and what they are about and if the right support and tools are offered it can unlock their potential for the rest of their lives. It is an honour to support a charity providing appropriate housing, emotional and educational resources that will give these young people the opportunity to tackle their challenges with dignity and to flourish in the next stage of their lives.

With building homes at its heart, Croudace Homes supports charities which assist those in need of housing, including young people requiring emergency accommodation. We are delighted to partner with Step by Step who offer valuable support to young people in urgent need, and help turn around their lives. Croudace Homes chose Step by Step as one of our ‘partner’ charities as it reflects our company ethos of assisting people in need of shelter and those facing homelessness. Step by Step works within our own area of operation, so we are keen to lend our support to a worthwhile charity providing essential help to young people struggling with hardship, empowering them to move on.

Fluor is a keen supporter of the excellent work that Step by Step does. The charity's impact and the way they work is truly inspiring. They are very communicative and regularly update us with stories and figures that can be used to keep employees engaged.

We encourage our staff to nominate charities which have impacted their lives in one way or another so that we can provide a little support. This is how we came to know about Step by Step, and as the years have gone on, we have continued to help them.It is hard enough being a young person in this day and age, so to have a safe place where they can get help and advice or just someone to listen is invaluable.
