“We focus on the needs of the individual, not their diagnosis.”
Stepping Stones believes in the potential for everyone to overcome the things that hold them back, and to live the lives they choose. We know that there are times when strong feelings and distressing experiences overwhelm us. At these times we all need people who will listen to us, respect us and who have the compassion and skill to help us.
We offer a range of support packages which are based on individual need. Fully trained experienced Staff 24 hours a day with a member of staff sleeping in at night. Senior member of staff on-call out of hours. 12 week assessment package available to assess and identify specific needs.

People who have been in hospital or other institutional care and have lost their confidence or ability to cope with everyday living skills. People who have become socially isolated and would benefit from peer support as well as the professional staff.
