Friends of Stepping Stones is an independent registered charity, which exists for the sole purpose of supporting the work of ‘Stepping Stones’, and for the benefit of the children and families who receive help and support from the project." We collect funds for and distribute funds to Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones Childrens Centre provides services for pre-school children who have an emerging or diagnosed disability. At Stepping Stones, children take part in activities both in a group, and working one-to-one with a project worker. Play workers are also on site to facilitate play and learning opportunities and to be with children between one-to-one sessions.

This facility is available to all families in Swansea who are referred by health professionals (since attendance is based on disability), and no other similar facility exists within the area.

Friends of Stepping Stones is an organisation which was started by families whose children attend or attended the Stepping Stones project, and who want to provide fundraising and support for the Centre. FoSS has existed since 2000 in its current form, and obtained independent Charity status in March 2009.

Stepping Stones should be available to all children in the Swansea area with a disability, but due to funding restrictions this is not possible and therefore the referring health professionals must decide amongst potential attendees. Even once this has been done there are still waiting lists. However, more staff at Stepping Stones means that more children can attend the project, and so FoSS is trying to improve staffing levels in order to ensure that the maximum number of children can attend the project. FoSS is an organisation that collects funds on behalf of Stepping Stones and gifts these funds to the Centre for appropriate projects.
