The Impact of a Charitable Act: A 20-year Property Journey

In November 2022, we bought a property that our charity had been looking after for over 20 years. A local person, as an act of goodwill, had given this family home to Doorstep so we could use it to help someone in need, without expecting anything in return.

For two decades, this property has been a safe place for young families, giving them a stable start in life. Unfortunately, the original owner passed away, but a relative decided to sell the property to Doorstep. This purchase allowed us to achieve our goal of providing quality homes that young people can be proud of, while positively impacting our communities.

This change didn’t disrupt the current tenant; it actually helped us continue our main mission – to support young people to lead an independent and settled way of life. Not only that, we now own an asset that’s been well cared for over 20 years and will benefit future generations.

Our strategy is straightforward: “Providing quality homes that young people want to live in and can be proud of, and that impact positively on our neighbourhoods.”

We are not just keeping these homes within our housing stock; we are also ensuring that they remain safe, welcoming, and full of opportunity for the young people who make their homes in them.
