We are Step One. 

Welcome to Step One Charity, where we provide comprehensive support to a diverse range of individuals who may have a mental health issue and/or a hidden disability.

Our experienced staff work tirelessly to provide compassionate support both within the community and at our dedicated facilities, including a newly refurbished hospital and supported living residences.    

We believe in taking a holistic approach to mental health and understand that an individual’s overall wellbeing is crucial to their ability to work, participate in their community, and enjoy a fulfilling life. That’s why we place great emphasis on considering the wider context of a person’s life and how it may be impacting their mental health. 

In addition to our work with individuals, we also offer support to communities and businesses through our BeWell@StepOne initiative. This service aims to provide learning opportunities and supportive groups to help others understand and support their own mental health and wellbeing. 

As a Devon-based charity with over 85 years’ experience, we have a deep understanding of the unique challenges faced by our local community. We are proud to offer specialised support to those struggling with their mental health and remain committed to making a positive impact on the lives of people we serve.
