Announcing Jodie as our first Brand Ambassador
When Jodie came to Step by Step, she never would have guessed that 10 years later she would become our very first Brand Ambassador.
We are so proud to be working with Jodie. She is not only tremendously passionate about supporting Step by Step, but will be a true inspiration to young people currently experiencing homelessness.
Jodie explains her journey:
“I came to Step by Step when I was forced to leave home at the age of 16 due to family breakdowns. The staff there helped me into Supported Lodgings where I stayed with two amazing people who supported me until I finished college. Now I have completed college, I have received my Bachelor of Sciences degree in Computing, and I am now working full-time and continuing my studies for a Master’s degree part-time.
The incredible help that Step by Step provided to me during such a difficult time is the reason I have been able to achieve this much and stay motivated. Now, 10 years later I am very excited to become their first brand ambassador and I look forward to helping others who are facing similar difficulties.”
We now have over 127 Supported Lodgings placements throughout the South-East supporting young people like Jodie through similar difficult circumstances and helping them to achieve their aspirations.
