STEP FORWARD HOUSING
First Ark and KHT are working in partnership with Step Forward Housing to improve access to new homes for current and ex-military personnel. With rising numbers finding themselves without access to housing upon leaving service, there is an urgent need for a solution.
Step Forward is a new initiative that prioritise providing quality accommodation, support and mentoring services to ex-military personnel, smoothing their transition to civilian life. Step Forward are also making homes available to the general public but priority will be given to armed forces and ex-armed forces personnel, as well as blue light workers, NHS staff and anyone with a local connection.
Together, over the next three years we propose to make 1000 homes available in desirable areas across the North West for both shared ownership and affordable rent. First Ark’s investment charity will also help get ex-service personnel into training and work placements.
In partnership with Step Forward we’re going to help as many military, ex-military, and blue light workers into high quality affordable accommodation as possible.
