Stepping Stones works with you to identify your client’s specific housing needs. We then approach and partner with socially-minded landlords in your chosen area, who would like to let their property to disadvantaged people. Once the property is ready and legally compliant, you move your clients in and continue to support them in a normal manner. We take care of and arrange all the maintenance, bills, license agreements and legal compliance of the property.
Most of the socially-minded landlords that we partner with require some income from their properties. We, therefore, support the clients to make housing benefit applications and arrange for payments to be made out of these benefits to the landlord. If clients are working they can pay rent themselves in the normal way. We look after all maintenance and also manage bill payments centrally for your clients.
