As a not for profit organisation, StEPs has a constitution which outlines the rules and regulations we operate under.                                                  StEPs Constitution

StEPs was set up in 2015 to widen the support offered to vulnerable age ranges in the St Albans District and beyond. Our remit quickly widened and we now support individuals and organisations across Hertfordshire. Our aims are to work with families who are vulnerable and in need of advice, help and support through more chaotic and troubling times. This can be for a variety of reasons, from anti social behaviour, drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence or behavioural issues. We also work with children with SEND (special educational needs or disabilities). 

We run Parenting courses and workshops which we target parents and carers to attend - some of these are 2 hour workshops and some are courses ranging from 4 to 8 weeks in length on a variety of different subjects - 'Understanding Boys' 'Understanding Teens' 'Positive Parenting and discipline' 'The family tookit' and many more.

Other services provided include parenting support, integrated practice for children and young people ensuring early intervention, adult and family learning platforms. We also offer enrichment programmes for children and young people to develop key skills linked to attainment, achievement and personal development and we can support local community groups to meet their specific needs and requirements.
​We have skilled and experienced staff and volunteers who are able to deliver:

  • Funding projects - including bid writing, project management and full project delivery if required
  • Parenting courses and workshops on a variety of subjects
  • ​Esafety programmes for children, parents, staff, governors and professionals
  • Self Esteem/Aspiration/Resilience programmes for children and young people - as part of PSHE or as an after school club
