Small Steps

A pre-school support service for children with disabilities and their parents

LAST UPDATED AT 12:36 ON Fri 1 Mar 2013

Small Steps is a pre-school support service for children with disabilities and their parents, and it works to two aims: firstly, it provides opportunities for the children to learn skills across all areas of their development, including communication, learning and social skills ­ though the focus is on their physical development; secondly, perhaps more importantly, Small Steps offers support to the parents of these children in coming to terms with having a disabled child. Now in its 15th year, it is a much-loved service. More than 50 families access the service each week from both the local south London area and beyond. Always focusing on the positive and on what the children can and will achieve, Small Steps makes a huge difference to the children and their parents. The charity is totally reliant on donations, grants and private fundraising in order to continue operating.
