CRASH Patrons Provide a Step Up Out of Homelessness

Step by Step, an organisation providing shelter and support to homeless young people aged 16-25.

The need

The charity approached CRASH to assist in the most significant construction project in their history.

The solution

CRASH helped complete a £3.7 million, three storey new build on a brown field site in Aldershot comprising of residential, training and administration facilities and replacing six unfit for purpose properties previously used by Step by Step.

How patrons helped

CRASH patrons AECOM, Balfour Beatty and Mansell provided free professional expertise, Bauder supplied and installed the roof at a significantly discounted rate and Burdens and Siniat supplied free materials.

CRASH awarded the project a grant of £20,000.

The social impact

“The new building is a significant milestone for Step by Step, however it is CRASH bringing together the construction and property industry, and the value of their professional expertise and free materials that has enabled us to sustain our mission of transforming young lives.”

Amanda Dubarry

Chief Executive, Step by Step
