Fundraise for Step One Charity.

Your fundraising efforts help us to continue providing our essential services to the lives of people struggling with mental health in Devon.

Last year we supported 699 people, and with your help, we can support even more people to reach their goals and live more independently.

Challenge events

Looking to tick something off your bucket-list or push yourself to reach new heights? From taking the leap of faith with a skydive to completing a half (or full!) marathon, explore our challenge event opportunities or contact us if you have any ideas. We’d love to hear from you!

“The Step One fundraising team were superb from start to finish. From sending out a fundraising pack with helpful ideas, support throughout the fundraising process, and meeting us at the venue to help ease anxieties on the day. They went above and beyond to make the fundraising process and actual skydive as stress-free as possible.”

– Laura, Step One Charity fundraiser

Fundraise at work

Fundraising at work not only opens conversations around mental health in the workplace, it also brings people together, encourages team building and raises money for a worthy local cause. If you would like to chat through your fundraising plans, our team are on hand to help!

Charity of the Year

By nominating Step One as your Charity of the Year, you can help us to provide the vital support that people in Devon need to live mentally healthy lives. We can work with you to create a bespoke calendar of events that will inspire, engage, and educate your team. Contact us today to learn more about how we can support each other.

How your fundraising helps

One in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives. Your fundraising efforts help us to provide essential mental health 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

Your support could help to make sure that our essential services remain available to those who need them most.
