Our Charity Partner
Through the sale of our sustainable luxury cushions Oath Home is proud to partner with Step by Step.
Stpe by Step is an organization that passionately believes in supporting and empowering local young people who are going through the hardest of times.
A Unique Approach
Firstly, Step by Step offer a unique approach: providing accommodation, personal development opportunities, and specialist support services. The charity empower young people and break the cycle of homelessness for good. They believe young people should not be face definition by their circumstances and should not have to sacrifice their aspirations and life chances because they find themselves homeless.
Secondly, a recent study showed that 110,000 16-24 year-olds were homeless or at risk of homelessness in the UK. This statistic is just the tip of the iceberg; it doesn’t account for the thousands of young people who are experiencing ‘hidden homelessness’.
That is to say that between January and March 2020, an estimated 11.2% of all people aged 16 to 24 were not in education, employment or training (NEET).
Consequently, if we pair this stat with the fact that 50% of mental health problems are establish themselves by the age of 14, and 75% by age 24, the barriers that vulnerable young people face become impossible to overcome on their own. Step by Step’s services tackle the issues outlined above in a holistic approach: accommodation, counselling personal development.
Three Main Pillars of Work
Finally, their three main pillars of work aim to reduce the figures in these national statistics; making genuine changes to young people’s lives.
For example, last year Step by Step’s services were instrumental in providing the chance of a brighter future to 1,091 vulnerable young people.
From these young people, Step by Step prevented homelessness for over 460; 96% of these making positive progress towards independent living, breaking the cycle of homelessness for good.
Together. Step by Step, and for every step.
