We are excited to announce the purchase of a new property in the New Forest, which will become Step by Step Foyer accommodation. The large house will accommodate four young people at any one time, expanding the number of young people we can support each year and moving our catchment into a brand new area.
Based in Totton, the house will need some conversion work before it is ready to use, including a staff sleepover room to ensure there is 24/7 support for the young people living there. We are hoping to open the New Forest Foyer towards the end of this financial year.
Step by Step have been awarded the local authority contract to provide an accommodation service in Totton, while the property itself represents a valuable asset for the future.
Debbie Moreton, Step by Step CEO, commented: “I am beyond proud of this fantastic opportunity to purchase our own house, giving a safe and caring home for young people moving away from homelessness. I wish our new residents every success and want to say a huge thank you to all the amazing team at Step by Step who made this happen.”
The New Forest Foyer will join our current shared accommodation sites based in Aldershot, Basingstoke and Havant.
