This integrative approach enabled participants to realise their potential in a more holistic way and to set some learning goals in areas not previously considered. For example working as a volunteer for the CAB; becoming a Trustee of a charity; joining a creative writing group; volunteering to help out at a community drama production; taking part in a charity walk.
The wider and perhaps sustainable influence that Steps has had on many participants is that continuous learning and development is an important activity in today’s world of constant change. That “standing still” is not an option and that self – managing personal development can return a wide range of benefits linked to Health, Well-being and Pursuing Aspirations in Life.

One of the enduring features of the Steps programme is its design of reflective space to enable participants to spend some time taking stock of themselves, their situations and challenges ahead.
This space created in a group environment enabled all participants to engage at different levels in the journey of self discovery they had embarked on.
