Welcome to KeySteps
the charity that helps people on low incomes in North Somerset
who are homeless, or at risk of being homeless,
into suitable private rental accommodation
KeySteps helps local homeless people across North Somerset into suitable accommodation in the private rental sector. One of our Bonds acts like a rent deposit, enabling clients to obtain a key to their own front door. Many of of our clients fall outside the statutory remit of the local authority.
KeySteps runs twice-weekly Drop-in Sessions for advice on housing and we offer a signposting service, highlighting other services, charities and support available locally for clients.
We also provide support for landlords and liaise with various other agencies on behalf of our Bond-holders. We give particular attention to helping under 35s to find affordable accommodation within the constraints of recent Housing Benefit reforms.
