We encourage people to take a first step to being in control of their future and fulfilling their potential.

We are Step One. 

We work with a diverse range of people who may have a mental health issue and/or a hidden disability such as an autism spectrum condition.

Our supportive staff work in the community and at our dedicated facilities, including a newly refurbished hospital and supported living residences.

Part of our approach is considering a person’s wider wellbeing which could be affecting their mental health, their ability to work, or to be a part of their community.

 As well as supporting individuals, the ‘BeWell@StepOne’ project aims to support communities and businesses to understand and support their own, and other’s, mental health and wellbeing through online and face-to-face learning opportunities and supportive groups. 

We are a Devon-based charity with over 80 years’ experience in providing specialised support throughout the county.
