The Porch Steppin' Stone

We are a day centre in East Oxford helping homeless and insecurely housed people move away from street-life, addictions and handouts to a life of independence.
We do this by providing a place of safety and welcome providing nutritious healthy food, showers, clothing, laundry and tenancy support
We are also a place of change and challenge providing opportunities for advancement through life-skills and job skill training, computers and working on our allotments growing our own organic vegetables. We provide accredited OCN courses in IT, Cooking and vegetable growing. We work individually with our members achieving goals through independent support plans.
We are open every day of the week, including Bank Holidays, except for Wednesdays and have to raise £250k each year to provide our successful service
