Stepping Stone Projects is a provider of high quality housing, support and charitable services for people who are homeless or at risk of losing their home. The charity has been operating since 1984, following lobbying by the Rochdale Voluntary Action’s Standing Committee on Homelessness.
Since our first project in Rochdale we have expanded and we now deliver services across the North-West in Blackburn, Burnley, Hyndburn, Pendle, Rossendale and Wigan as well as Rochdale.
We believe that everyone has a right to quality accommodation and services which help them to achieve their optimum level of independence.
We offer a range of stable short-term accommodation-based and floating support services that offer one-to-one support and advocacy to achieve this, linking service users in with other agencies where appropriate to address problems associated with homelessness.
Our work supports service users to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to secure and maintain independent accommodation as soon as they are able.
We work in close partnership with local Strategic Authorities, Supporting People Commissioners and other stakeholders to identify and deliver quality, value for money services.
Part of British Gas’s approach to corporate responsibility is to encourage and support their staff to get involved in community projects and volunteering.
Ashburn House is one of the projects that staff from British Gas have been supporting this year.
The 5 a side league has just started again for the new season, all services have a football rep. so please ask your support worker if you are interested in joining in, we don’t require a long-term commitment and support is given with transport and kit.
