All Services in Rotherham

Rotherham First Steps Hostel


The First Steps Hostel situated on Queen Street provides short-term temporary accommodation for rough sleepers or those at risk of rough sleeping in the Rotherham area.  We accommodate up to 7 residents at a time with each resident having their own bedroom and use of communal areas.  First Steps Hostel is a joint project between Target Housing and RMBC offering 24 hour support with staff from both services on site during the week and security staff overnight.  We provide intensive wrap-around support tailored to meet individual need.  Residents are welcomed into a warm and friendly environment, provided with emotional support and help to develop life skills while being assisted to move on to secure, longer term accommodation.


We pride ourselves on providing holistic and person centred support throughout the asylum and refugee journey. Our ‘wraparound’ services include advice, signposting and advocacy on issues such as housing, education, training, employment, budgeting and health. Working with partners we offer accredited ESOL, therapeutic support and short-term workshops eg creative writing groups. Service users are also invited to join our volunteering initiatives, including an allotment project. We are open to developing new services and are happy to engage in conversations about potential partnerships in which our expertise can help deliver services to those in vulnerable situations.
