Welcome to Second Step

How we help

Our homeless services help people, including those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, to find suitable accommodation they can call home.

We work with the NHS to run mental health services which focus on the individual - working with them to find the hope and courage to take the next steps in their recovery.

We run a number of services in the community which help people find the hope and courage they need to make the most of their health and wellbeing.
