STEP works with, and is generously supported by, a number of local and national organisations. Click through to visit their pages and find out more. Thanks must go to the individuals, teams and businesses who complete sponsored activities, nominate STEP, and/or hold fundraising events in the community that benefit us hugely. You are all amazing, thank you!
We have the following volunteering opportunities available.
Face-to-face work with young people, evenings and Saturdays.
Meeting every 6 weeks to oversee the running of STEP.
If you are unable to commit to a regular time, perhaps helping to raise money for STEP would be more suited to you. If you have any ideas for this or are involved in any events, please get in touch.
STEP seeks positive adult role models (over 18 years of age) to work alongside Project Workers in small groups of 7 - 18 year olds. Groups are activity based with a therapeutic aim behind them, for example anger management, building self-esteem or improving communication skills could be looked at through art, drama or cooking.

All reasonable travel expenses are paid back. Volunteering at STEP should cost you nothing but your time. Volunteers make regular mileage claims for a personal vehicle or keep public transport tickets for reimbursement by cheque within one week. It is the volunteer's responsibility to ask for the relevant form and ensure the claim is submitted to the Administrator.
Training is currently being reviewed but sessions include Boundaries, Role of the Volunteer, Safeguarding Young People and Dealing with Difficult Situations.

S.T.E.P is overseen by a committee of Trustees. Members are invited to join on the basis of their interest and skills. New members are voted into position by existing Trustees. What is a Trustee?
Trustees take overall responsibility for everything the Charity does, and act collectively to direct it, according to the Charity’s governing document (Constitution).
Governance is concerned with leadership and direction. It is about ensuring STEP has a clear, shared vision of its purpose, what it is aiming to achieve and how in broad terms it will go about doing it.
However, although they have ultimate responsibility, governance is not a role for trustees alone. Trustees must work with managers, staff, volunteers, service users and stakeholders to ensure STEP is properly run and meets the needs for which it was set up.
If you are interested in finding out more about the committee, or becoming a Trustee, please use the Contact Us page.
