A little bit about Positive Steps

Who we are

Positive Steps is a charitable trust that delivers a range of targeted and integrated services for young people, adults and families that recognises the diversity of the people with whom we work.

We are a unique organisation delivering a combination of statutory, voluntary and traded services – funded through local authority and charitable trust grants, charitable donations, contracts based on payment by results, and income generated through our trading arm – where all profits fund our charitable activity.

Our impact

Positive Steps has continued to deliver well in helping young people, adults and families to reach their full potential. Our purpose is to support people to succeed; challenge things that limit potential; and help people to change and take control of their lives.

What we do

We work with some of the most vulnerable people with an ethos of helping them take control of their lives and transform their life chances. Many of the people we work with face multiple and entrenched disadvantages, with our support they can overcome these challenges to become independent citizens making a positive contribution to their communities. We build on our experience and success in order to reach more people through direct support and community activity.
