Who can stay with us?
The Stepping Stone Home is for:
- Separated or estranged wives
- Servicewomen and former servicewomen
- UK and non-UK female citizens
- Those who depend on any of these women.
If you are a welfare agency and wish to refer someone to stay with us, fill out our referral form with their details and return it to us.
The home is fully furnished and equipped so you just need to bring your personal items such as clothes and your children’s favourite teddy bear to help them through a difficult time. Unfortunately, we are unable to store any large items at the house, but we can help you find suitable storage arrangements.
Stepping Stone South provides purpose-built accommodation for 20 families at any one time. The house has 20 en-suite rooms as well as communal lounges, large kitchens, a well-equipped playroom with toys and softplay. There is a computer room with printers and free Wi-fi to help with homework, househunting, jobseeking and keeping in touch with family and friends. There is an office on-site where you can find our staff when you need them.
Our guests can also make the most of a lovely, spacious garden with a play area and seating area.
