About us

Step Up is a service that offers support, advocacy and counselling to families where children have been sexually abused or raped. Step Up aims to support and empower parents in order that they are better able to support their children through the trauma of sexual abuse.
Step Up offers a warm, safe, non-judgemental space for parents and children to explore their feelings around the abuse that has taken place.

Following a shift in the allocation of funding from the council, Step Up are now losing out on £30,000 of funding from early 2016. Redundancies will need to be made before the end of the 2015, so we are in a desperate situation. We are applying for funding, planning fundraising events and reaching out to organisations that may be able to assist us - please consider making a donation to help support the continuation of our services if you are able to.

   

FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN HELP

We are always looking for volunteers to help with the service. This could mean training to become a Support Worker to offer the service to new clients, or becoming a member of the Telephone Helpline Staff.

However, we also have volunteering opportunities in the Step Up Charity Shop, or helping out with light office duties.

We would also welcome offers from trained counsellors or supervisors who might want to offer their expertise in this area.
