Welcome to Step Together. We are a new support and housing service for adults in Somerset who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and also have a mix of mental health needs, drug and alcohol problems, behavioural issues, debt or have been involved in the criminal justice system.
Our clients have complex needs and often find it extremely hard to sustain positive change in their lives. We believe we have a responsibility to make sure our service, and the system as a whole, does all it can to reverse this experience.
Our service is primarily about helping people to live fulfilling lives in their own communities, retain their tenancy and reduce repeated homelessness.
We support people to build their strength and reach their own goals, such as:
- maintaining a home;
- improving health and wellbeing;
- accessing treatment;
- reducing re-offending; and,
- becoming part of their communities though activities, training, volunteering or employment
