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.

Eligibility Criteria:

To be eligible for this project you must be male, aged over 18 and at risk of/currently rough sleeping.  You must also have an open homeless case with RMBC.

Referral Process:

All referrals are received from RMBC’s Homeless team following assessment. Please note we are unable to accept any direct referrals for accommodation.
