Choir sings for KeySteps
On 1st October 2016 the Gloucester and District Christian Choir came to Yatton Methodist Church. They gave a magnificent concert of Christian songs which enthralled an audience of over 60 people. Everyone was sorry when the Choir's coach arrived to take them back to Gloucester. It was a superb evening and raised the grand sum of £450.00 for KeySteps. We are all grateful to the choir and audience for coming and helping to raise this amount.
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.
