Stepping Stones for Families

Sustaining Positive Change

for Children & Families

For thirty years, Stepping Stones for Families has worked alongside children, young people and families to give them support, opportunities and a voice in tackling the effects of poverty and disadvantage in their lives. 

This is “Our Story” told through this short animation. Learn about the people we work alongside, our approach, our ethos, and our services.


A Children's Rights Based Approach

Stepping Stones for Families is fully committed to promoting a children’s rights based approach in all that we do; not just within our services but also externally with our: partners; funders; and communities.

We empower children and young people by raising awareness, sharing information and education about their rights.

We support and involve children in decisions that may affect them.

We include children in the development and design of activities, programmes and services.
