From our base at St Faith’s Community Centre in Herne Hill, we operate a weekly programme of activities and classes. Stepping Stones was established in 1997 in response to a lack of provision for activities for adults with learning disabilities in the local area. Originally operating as part of St Faith’s Youth and Community Centre, we became an independent and registered charity in 2005. Today, we remain closely linked, and enjoy and benefit from our placement in the middle of a multi purpose community centre.
The majority of adults who come to Stepping Stones have moderate and severe disabilities, and many are accompanied by their carers and support workers through out the session. We aim to provide activities which can broaden the horizons of people who can so easily be overlooked by society. We know that everyone has talents to share, confidence to gain and joy to be had.
In addition to our activities at St Faith’s, we also work in partnership with other organisations and deliver off site classes in a number of venues.
