Overview of Services

Step 2 offers a range of services to young people in schools, community sessions and through outreach, offering services to young people individually, in groups or whole class settings.

Girls on SwingsWe are based on Tong Street, Bradford, where we have a space for group work, a drop-in, counselling space and office space for staff.

We can work across the Bradford District and neighbouring areas, but most of our work is  delivered in South Bradford and Keighley. In the future would like extend these services to neighbouring communities in the North of England.  The initial stage of our development has been to establish two additional bases in the district, with a development worker based in each. One of these is on the Buttershaw estate, and the other in Keighley.

We offer a range of services to help improve the emotional well-being of children and young people and to also educate children and young people on a range of health related issues.  We take our services in to a number different community settings, including but not limited to schools, youth clubs, health centres and community centres.

We can work with young people as individuals, in groups or in whole classes. We have some formal programmes we deliver, but all  are adaptable to suit the needs of the young people we work with

Our current programmes are  

  1. Insight
  2. Protective Behaviour
  3. Respect

  5. RSE




We have a range of community partners, and are keen to develop these to ensure young people are engaged in accessing quality services.
