The Porch charity runs the Steppin' Stone Centre in Oxford, providing day long support for homeless and vulnerably housed people wanting to move forward in their lives, away from street-life and addiction.


We are an organisation that arose from Christian ministry and whose mission is to help, in a totally non-discriminatory way, homeless, recently re-housed homeless or vulnerably housed people. We encourage our members to tackle the issues that prevent them from moving forward towards a more positive lifestyle. Our focus is upon support and nurture, along with challenge. We concentrate upon housing, health, wellbeing, education and employment. We provide healthy food, practical help, companionship, learning skills, work related skills and opportunities for development.
