At Step by Step we accommodate up to 245 people at any given time. You may be housed as a lodger with a host family, couple, or single person. We call this Supported Lodgings. You may have a room in shared accommodation with other young people. We call our shared accommodation Foyers.
Either way, you can expect that you will have a stable place to stay as well as good access to support that can help you with your confidence and independence, and support with things like routes into training or work.
People like you have told us that they felt uncertain about living in Step by Step accommodation and that they weren’t sure what to expect.
