They work with young people aged 16 to 25, (in some cases older than this), through a structured combination of services including accommodation, support, training, and counselling.

As she re-iterated yesterday, “We don’t just provide emergency accommodation ‘to keep people off the streets’, but a structured scheme of accommodation and support giving opportunities which can lead to independent living”..

Step by Step work with their clients to progress them through the scheme as they experience decreasing levels of supervision, but they remain fully supported throughout their stay with them.

Farnborough Rotary Club’s President Jim Thomson, thanked Amanda for her presentation and presented a cheque for £500.
