Organisations We Work With

The culture here at the Stepping Stones Group is one of involvement in the communities we serve. Our children and their families live and generally work in the areas of our settings so it is important for us to be involved at a local and where appropriate a national level. For this reason we are actively involved in a number of organisations that have meaning and purpose to what we strive to provide for our clients.

Stoke City Supporters
Change For Life
Supporters – The Stoke City FC Community Fund is a major community initiative that makes a difference to the lives of many local people. The Fund is a grant scheme that funds small, local community-based projects in Staffordshire and South Cheshire.

City hold a number of fund-raising activities over the course of the season including the Chairman’s Annual Charity Ball which generates significant sums of money for local groups, projects, community groups and self-help organisations. It’s a great way to have fun and get involved with important community work.

Supporters – Change4Life’s aim is to inspire a broad coalition of people, including the NHS, local authorities, businesses, charities, schools, families, community leaders – in fact anyone working with families or individuals – to all play a part in improving the nation’s health and well-being by encouraging everyone to eat well, move more and live longer.

The movement now encompasses adults, and has a sister brand, Start4Life, which introduces healthy habits right from birth. Change4Life uses cartoon imagery and informal, non-judgmental language to suggest easy diet and exercise swaps. It also offers support so that our audience is more likely to make the changes they need to a healthier lifestyle.

Supporters – Shelter is a charity that works to alleviate the distress caused by homelessness and bad housing. They do this by giving advice, information and advocacy to people in housing need, and by campaigning for lasting political change to end the housing crisis for good.

Shelter provides free, confidential advice to people with all kinds of housing problems through their online housing information and face to face local services. Shelter lobbies government and local authorities for new laws and policies, and more investment, to improve the lives of homeless and inappropriate housing.

South Cheshire Chamber Of Commerce
Bookstart Bear Club
Members – National Day Nurseries Association is the national charity and membership association for nurseries. NDNA provides nursery support, information and advice, childcare training and a quality improvement scheme, e-Quality Counts.

Their goal is clear – to promote quality in early years care and education for the benefit of children, families and the local community.

Members – The Chambers organise and promote activities or plans that benefit or improve the commercial, industrial and professional outputs of businesses in an area. The Chamber’s work includes supporting or opposing legislation or local plans affecting the business climate or conditions.

Chamber members share their knowledge with each other; which comes from real life experience and is found through person to person networking. The Chamber strongly believe in providing the platform for people to share knowledge, experience and best practices to create an enriched and interactive community

Supporters – Bookstart is the national early intervention and cultural access programme for every child. The programme is run by Booktrust, an independent charity dedicated to encouraging people of all ages and cultures to engage with books.

It is coordinated, resourced and delivered locally via enthusiastic local public services professionals, including health visitors, library staff and early year’s professionals and we are proud to be supporting these efforts.
