First Step began in October 1988 in response to a plea from some parents of young children with special needs and/or disabilities. They felt they, and others in similar situations, could benefit from a group where they would be able to talk, share experiences, and provide support for each other in a non judgmental environment.

Since that time, the charity has evolved to provide a range of sessions and services. First Step currently works with over 100  pre-school children, and their families, offering education services, support, information and encouragement.

First Step’s mission is to┬áprovide the best possible environment to support each family and to enable their very young children with special needs and/or disabilities to maximise their individual potential.
