The Small Steps Story:
Small Steps provides self-contained accommodation for 11 young mums under 25 years old and their babies, who are at risk of being separated typically due to a lack of appropriate accommodation or support.
Each mum is taught skills that can assist them in living independently in the community, such as budgeting, maintaining a stable tenancy, and providing a safe and healthy environment for their child.
Since its establishment in June 2014, Small Steps has provided assistance to over 40 mums, with many moving onto independent living, whilst successfully completing studies or employment.
Small Steps receives no on-going government funding, and therefore only operates through the generous donations from the community.
