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.

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.

service users BBQ

Summertime and the living is easy!

The service users of 129 Millfield Road made the most of our recent spell of hot weather by having a weekend barbeque.

The BBQ was epic with everyone chipping in to make it fun. On the menu we had mouth watering and succulent beef burger, tantalizing pork sausages, coleslaw, corn on the cob, potato salad and of course cold drinks to quench the thirst. It was all fun and excitement with lots of chats and memories created
