Supporting Children

Small Steps provides specialist developmental support for young children with physical disabilities. We work on all areas of the child's development, using the principles of Conductive Education.

Supporting Parents

At Small Steps we teach parents and carers skills to help their child whilst supporting them through the emotional journey of having a disabled child.

How you can help

£ raised
[Target £575,000 Financial year 1 June 2024 to 31 May 2025]

We pride ourselves in offering a free service to all families.  Small Steps does not receive any statutory funding and we have to raise over £450,000 a year. We are solely dependent on grants, donations and fundraising in order to operate.  

Help us raise money for Small Steps! There are so many different things you can do; why not take on a sponsored challenge, make a regular monthly donation or ask your employer to take Small Steps on as their nominated charity? Every penny raised makes a real difference to the lives of the families we support.

By leaving a gift to Small Steps in your Will, you will help us to give the young children at Small Steps the best chance to fulfil their potential and maximise their independence today, tomorrow and into the future.

What do we do?

Group sessions at Small Steps are holistic, working on all areas of a child's development.  Children attend once per week, with a parent or carer. There are up to 6 children per group who are all working on similar skills.  Parents learn how to incorporate tasks into daily life with the child at home.

Conductive Education is about active learning.  It focuses on the positive and is based on the strong belief that children with physical disabilities can learn new or different ways of approaching and dealing with everyday tasks, through a greater knowledge of their own abilities.

Small Steps works with children aged birth to 5 years who have cerebral palsy or other forms of motor impairment, syndromes or sensory impairment.  Our families come from across London and surrounding areas.
