13th – Step by Step

 
On the 13th August Hugh Foster, Senior Support Worker at Jude Court, supported accommodation for young people based in Shaftesbury spoke about the work he and his colleagues undertake in the provision of support for young adults.
 
Hugh gave a potted history of Step By Step, the charity that provides practical and emotional support in tandem with Sovereign Housing Association who provide the physical locations.
Step By Step now has five Foyers across the South in Aldershot, Fareham and Gosport, Basingstoke, Havant and in Shaftesbury.
 
The overall aim is help young people who have not had the opportunities afforded to most young adults, through training, apprenticeships and employment. Step by Step also attempts to develop social and emotional skills which will be of benefit in later life so the residents can exploit their greatest potential.
