At 3 Steps Project North East, our aim is to provide a new approach when addressing the situations that our neighbours find themselves in. From homelessness and sleeping rough to mental health problems and addiction issues, there’s a lot going on in The North East Of England. How our communities interact with people who find themselves in situations that require a compassionate, calm, and measured approach changes the end result, and this is why we work hard for everyone in the local area.

We’re a small but effective can-do, resilient group with knowledge and more than 30 years’ experience working in the care environment, and this allows us to guide individuals to self-actualisation. 3 Steps Project North East provides and supplies secure accommodation to vulnerable groups to ease demand.
The homeless issue is a mounting crisis and becoming almost unmanageable with hostels and housing associations working as a revolving door to people with complex needs.
