Advocacy & Capacity-Building

For Individuals & Families

Stepping Forward currently supports individuals and families who are struggling to access services and support. Our advocacy work has succeeded in securing:

  • Essential equipment for home and school
  • Appropriate educational provision
  • Personal grants

With a grant from Awards for All we are able to directly support Berkshire families to access essential resources and support for their disabled children. We are running one-to-one Advice Clinics  – initially at special schools – where we identify support for the resource needs that will enable disabled children and young people to live as full a life as possible. This includes making applications with families to a range of trusts and foundations for support for specific areas of need, including wheelchairs, specialist equipment. We know that the right support at the right time can help children and families enormously – whether it be to access clubs, to increase mobility, to purchase essential equipment or to secure respite breaks.
