Step 2's Vision

Girl with Doll

Young people will be healthy in every way, supported by quality services and each other.

At Step2 our mission is to enable children and young people to live healthy lives by providing information and delivering services to them, to their families, or to professionals who work with them.

Step 2 began on the Bierley estate in Bradford in 1993, when a youth worker assisted a group of young people to secure funding for a project that would give health information to them and their peers.

Step 2 Charity

It has evolved over the years, but still exists to protect and promote the good health of children and young people who are subject to health inequalities within the Bradford Metropolitan District.

We have a stable, passionate and dedicated staff team, who all have a commitment to enabling young people to be physically and mentally healthy, happy and successful.


In everything we do our work
