Providing a safe and affordable home

Our housing services support people who are in need of a home, are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless by providing safe, secure and affordable housing when they need it.


NextStep is a professional housing service delivered by YMCA East Surrey. With over 15 years of experience, our team assists landlords to find tenants whilst working with tenants to fund the deposit needed for privately rented accommodation.

NextStep provides a free and supported service. Over 275 landlords have rented their property through NextStep and 784 tenancies have been created.

YMCA Hillbrook House

YMCA Hillbrook House provides homeless young people aged 16-30 with safe accommodation in Redhill and support to live independently.

Each resident receives advice, support and access to a range of services. Whatever brings young people to this point, we can help them address those issues and move on.

Over the course of 10 years, we have housed and supported over 450 young people.

Supported Move On

We have three additional move-on houses in Horley, Merstham and Redhill which provide further support for those who need it on leaving Hillbrook House. These bedsits provide a less intensive housing support option for those in housing need.

Housing Advice

If you are aged between 18-30 with a local connection to Surrey and in need of housing advice, you may wish to speak to our housing advisor.

We will talk to you about your current housing and help you identify your best option moving forward. If you have support needs it may be agreed with you that accessing supported housing such as Hillbrook House is the most appropriate, however, if it is purely accommodation that is needed, we will be able to help you look at other possibilities such as private renting or applying to the housing register.

If you would like further information please contact us on 01737 773089 to ask for the Housing and Move-on Advisor.
