"Stepdown were there when I needed support; sitting me down and trying to talk to me about making the right choices in life.The best care company I have ever worked with"
"The support has helped me mature and think about things in a different way. If it wasn't for the support I received I would probably still be in a bad place"
"Stepdown were the biggest part of becoming the young adult I am today - I will always keep in contact with them"
Stepdown is a young and progressive charity established to provide care and support services for children, young people and families.
Young people can live with Stepdown and receive intensive support in small Stepdown Cottages or within the family homes of Stepdown Carers. To prevent breakdown, Stepdown will work with families wherever they live and will support young people to live in the family home or independently in their own flats.
We provide a range of cottages and flats where young people with complex needs can receive the support they need to return to home, move to another placement or achieve independance.
We recognise the critical place for early intervention or prevention programmes. We provide both assesment and early support to families, parents and young people to prevent breakdown.
Stepdown Carers are an integral part of our Services. They provide supported care, foster care and respite care for children and young people.
We work closely with Social Care and Health Authorities to tailor the service to ensure it best meets the needs of the young person and family.
We help support young people to establish themselves independantly through tailored support programs.
Inline with the individuals care plan we provide psychological assesment and behaviour management programs.
