Next Steps

Our Next Steps programme was developed to support young people leaving Local Authority foster or residential care or who have left care in an unplanned way, and who need extra support to achieve their potential and move forward in their life. The project’s primary function is to support young people from care into independent living.

The project is funded by the Big Lottery for 3 years from March 2017 – February 2020, and is part of a wider programme supporting Young Carers and Young Offenders delivered in partnership with No Limits and Southampton Voluntary Services.
