Key2

Key2 helps young people move from care to independent lives and homes. Key2 was set up in 2004 to meet the needs of young people leaving local authority care with complex and high support needs. All too often, this vulnerable group were ending up in lowest quality housing with little or no support.

Since then, we've diversified to offer a range of services and expanded to become an important provider across the Midlands and South of England providing housing and support to over 225 young people. We employ 85+ full-time staff and who work from our local bases in the towns and cities where we operate. All our staff are directly employed by Key2. We only use agency staff in exceptional circumstances.

Key2 blends the stability of the voluntary and statutory sector with the speed, flexibility and dynamism of a private company. We offer positive, effective solutions to complex problems. Clients and partners choose Key2 because:

  • we're innovative, flexible and deliver quickly
  • we're responsive and focused on the things that matter
  • we're clear, caring and offer real value for money

We take referrals of young people from Social Services and Housing Departments and other agencies.
