Donate to Step One Charity

Help Step One improve, change and save lives through a one-off donation or regular monthly payment.

Last year, Step One supported over 700 people in Devon who required support for mental health challenges, learning disabilities or neurodiversity. With your help, we can reach even more people and make a real difference in their lives.

How will your donation help?

Your donation will help us to provide essential mental health and wellbeing support to adults over 18 in Devon. This includes preventing crises, offering support to those who don’t know where to turn, and providing creative and wellbeing activities. Your support helps us to offer a wide range of life-enhancing activities and tools, such as:

  • Specialist equipment
  • Redecorated wards
  • Sensory items to help calm anxious patients
  • Day trips for those we support in the community
  • Vital mental health support in people’s homes and in the community through our online and in-person BeWell programme

As an independent charity, every penny of your donation goes directly towards supporting our work and makes a real difference. Your support could help to make sure that our essential services remain available to those who need them most.
