“Step-In” Camps from Friday 9th to Sunday 11th October 2020

Steps are pleased to launch our new “Step-In” Camps this October 2020. We are partnering with the Calvert Trust in the Lake District to offer an invaluable weekend experience where families with children affected by a lower limb condition come together to meet, discuss and share their experiences of living with that condition. This may well be the first-time children will meet others sharing their condition therefore the weekend is designed to offer activities and workshops where the entire family can “step-in” and share medical, social and emotional experiences that will be of use and some comfort to the families involved. The weekend also promises to offer lots of fun through the many activities available! With qualified professionals, volunteers and other dedicated staff on hand, we hope to provide some time and space for families to make lasting friendships.

Registration will open Wednesday 1st April 2020.

If you have your own place in a major run, then we’d love to talk to you about how we can support you, if you choose to use the event to raise funds for Steps.

Great South Run

The Great South Run is the South coast’s best 10-mile event and celebrates everything that’s great about Portsmouth! We are delighted to have Pre-Registration places and to offer one to you! By running for Steps, you will help us raise awareness and  much needed funds so that we can continue to help all those affected by childhood lower limb conditions.
