Improving outcomes for children, young people, their families and the wider community

Positive parenting isn't easy. Fact!

Every different stage has different challenges, but you are not alone. There are people going through similar circumstances to you and many agencies and professionals are here to help, its just a question of finding the right ones!

We are able to work with families (there are costs involved, but this can often be covered if you have an eCAF in place or in some cases schools cover the costs themselves). We can tailor make a plan to best support your needs, whether you need support with behaviour, routines, access or financial issues. StEPs highly experienced and dedicated staff can support you through all of lifes challenges. From housing to behavioural issues, we can assist with supporting you, your family and your child's school with anything that is causing you anxiety. We have many years experience working with families and have a vast range of networks and contacts in the local area. If we don't know the answer, we will find someone that does!

Some of the issues we are able to help with are:

  • Changing Schools (transition phase)
  • Managing challenging behaviour
  • Temperamental teenagers
  • Helping with your child’s learning
  • Loss or bereavement
  • Financial concerns
  • Housing concerns
  • Family breakdowns
  • Internet safety
  • Issues with smoking, drugs and alcohol
  • Being in an abusive relationship
  • Support for families with children with additional needs
