Community Group Activities (STEPS)

Steps is a community service run by Livewell Southwest which helps people with a range of problems and recovering from illness, to gain confidence and independence though community and group activities.

You can refer yourself to our services, or your GP or health and care professionals already supporting you can refer you.

We will work with you to help you achieve your goals and aspirations. We also recognise that your journey is difficult and your experiences are likely to have been painful.
