About Small Steps

Small Steps is our early years, early intervention service. Families with pre-school age children can access parenting support over the phone and at our weekly group sessions, and we can help with related issues such as budgeting and healthy eating as well as signposting to other services for issues like housing problems. Our weekly group meets at Vallis First School in the community room, on Thursdays from 12.30pm to 2pm. Group sessions cost £1 per child (suggested donation). There are several Covid safe measures in place at the moment – please remember to bring your mask!

How to refer to Small Steps

The service is open to families who are referred to us by partner organisations or by self-referral – please contact us by emailing suewillis@purpleelephant.org.uk to access the service. Our early intervention worker Sarah Hynds will contact the family to discuss the best method of support.
