Welcome to The First Step

At The First Step we offer emotional and practical support either by telephone; face to face at our office or we can meet with you in the community.

Support can include advice and guidance on your legal options, housing, safety planning, one to one sessions tailored to meet your needs or talk with you to explore your options. We also offer group support, The Freedom Programme and the Recovery Toolkit and other therapeutic groups which have included art, health and wellbeing, cooking, computers and family days out.

We accept referrals from individuals and agencies.


It’s not your fault
You are not alone
You have the right to live free from fear
