Petrus Step Up
Petrus Step Up works in partnership with the Bond Board, a charity that prevents homelessness by assisting people to secure and maintain homes in the private rented sector and provides support to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
The aim of Step up Rochdale is to work in a way that gets homeless people off the street quickly. Step up Rochdale provides access to various kinds of accommodation and ongoing support using our own accommodation services or other services in the community.
Petrus Step Up consists of a range of services based at Petrus Hub providing one to one assessment, advice and advocacy and a range of structured activities, short-term outreach support to make sure people are empowered and engaged in a way that means they do not return to the street.
