STEP Swindon

STEP is a registered charity, providing a safe and supportive environment for children and young people aged 7 - 18, who are experiencing isolation and exclusion due to either their lack of social skills, personal circumstances or poverty, living in Swindon or the wider community.

STEP works with young people to help them build essential skills and to be able to manage their own lives. These skills include assertiveness, anger management, self-confidence/esteem, communication and teamwork. STEP provides a range of projects that use activities young people want and agree beforehand, to look at, and deal with, significant issues in their lives.

STEP believes that a small group of young people, staff and adult volunteers meeting on a regular basis is one of the most beneficial environments for young people to discover and nurture their abilities. STEP ultimately believes therefore, that a climate of trust and confidentiality is essential for the provision of its service, and so a set of clear boundaries are adhered to.
