Stepping Stone Projects provides accommodation and support across the North-West to people who are homeless or at risk of losing their homes

At Stepping Stone Projects, we believe that everyone has the right to good quality accommodation, and the kind of support that will allow them to reach their optimum level of independence.

By offering a range of stable short-term accommodation with both on-site and floating support services, we aim to help our customers to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to secure and maintain independent accommodation.
