Introducing Step One - DASLS President's Charity of the Year 2019-2020

 

Step One is delighted to have been chosen as the President’s Charity of the Year for 2019-20. We’re looking forward to a fantastic year in partnership together.

 

Step One is a Devon based charity working with people to manage their own wellbeing and live fulfilling lives. Our services range from crisis mental health to community-based support and learning. We work with approximately 800 local people every year to build hope, connections, a sense of their own strengths, resources, resilience and potential. We deliver commissioned and charitably funded services within the health, social care, community, and criminal justice sectors.

 

Our fundraising activities this year are focused on supporting our Mental Wellbeing Community Learning Hub Daybreak in Torbay, which supports people to build resilience, social connection and resources to effectively manage their mental health and wellbeing; reducing stigma and the escalation of mental health crisis.

 

Daybreak is based in the centre of Paignton and is free and open to anyone who wishes to build their resources and skills to manage their mental health and wellbeing.

 

We involve people with life experience of mental health challenges in everything we do at Daybreak, and offer opportunities for people to share their learning and experience with others through co-designing and co-delivering workshop and groups.

 

We run a wide range of mental wellbeing workshops and groups including:

  • Coping with Loss and Grief
  • Managing Anxiety
  • Managing Depression
  • Dealing with Change

“Daybreak is better than all the medications put together”

 

step-one-photo Paul is volunteering at our Daybreak centre where he can support himself and others to manage mental health issues.  

 

“I have depression and anxiety from a break up from a few years ago, and have been on anti-depressants for a long time. Daybreak is better than all the medications put together. Coming here has made a big difference in my life.

 

I got a warm welcome as soon as I came here. I was very quiet for the first two weeks, not knowing what to expect but the staff and service users all spoke to me and made me feel at home.

 

It was nice to hear people in the same situation as myself and to be able to talk openly without being judged.”

 

We would like to say a huge thank you for choosing Step One as your charity of the year and we look forward to an exciting year in partnership. For information on how to get involved please contact lisa.whittaker@steponecharity.co.uk
