Stgep Forward Support Linktree QR code

Making Feedback Easier

Link tree QR code

Enabling visitors to our services to leave feedback is an important requirement that has historically proven difficult to obtain. By using a QR code that directs to a linktree, we can provide an easy way to access not only our feedback form but also our social media channels and our website, all from one simple push-button menu.

Linktree provides a simple user experience which allows access to any number of links from one website or app using only a smartphone camera. By creating a QR code that takes the user directly to the link tree, this journey becomes even simpler, promoting access and feedback in the shortest number of virtual steps.

Our link tree currently provides access to our homepage, Feedback Form, Facebook Page, Twitter Page, LinkedIn Page, and Instagram Page. Other links can be added at any time without the need to renew the QR code. Soon we hope to add a link to our current employment vacancies to enable an easy way to apply for jobs.

You can experience the process now by opening your device’s camera and pointing it at the QR code above (older devices may require a QR code scanner to be added from the app/play store).

Step Forward Support has a long history of supporting adults with mental health, learning disabilities and forensic backgrounds to live safely in the community. Through consistent, structured support planning and delivery, we enable the people we support to live productive, independent lifestyles, with the opportunity for personal growth and development to achieve dreams and aspirations.

Independent living skills are just one step in the journey to realising true independence. But with the dedication and perseverance of an effective support team, we have demonstrated that individuals who were previously not afforded the opportunity to participate in society can safely do so.

Caring for the garden

Robert has been taking pride in the work he has put in to making the garden at 129 Millfield Road a more enjoyable place to spend time. He is enjoying the benefits of seeing the plants he planted bloom and thrive under his constant care and attention, making sure their needs are met and they remain healthy and grow. Robert says that having the responsibility for an area of the shared outdoor space at the care home has given him a sense of purpose and a positive focus for his time. Robert is keen to continue with his gardening duties and intends to develop the area into something really special.
