A social and educational drop in facility held in a venue that is both a vibrant, and friendly community centre in the heart of Workington.

Stepping Stone 2to is community based and aimed at people who struggle to access mainstream society in a positive and contributary manner. This may be due to problems with learning difficulties, such as, reading and writing, problems with numbers, low confidence and self-esteem, and/or trouble communicating with others.

People may have feelings of being isolated and wanting to meet new friends in a safe and comfortable environment but not sure how to go about it. They may want a chance to improve, life and work skills at an individually tailored pace in a safe and comfortable environment that suits them. But also the chance to socialize with others if they wish.

We also offer tailored Health and Wellbeing sessions, where healthy diet, and exercise are promoted to improve quality of life, confidence, personal image, and self-esteem.

Stepping Stone 2to already has a core group of people who have themselves made excellent progress through attending the charity and who now meet on a regular basis with the support of the tutors.

The existing members now meet, greet, and help others to progress, which is done through the various activities both educational, social, health, and wellbeing.

Life and work skills training is included thereby enabling individuals to have a more enhanced and positive access to services and facilities in their local community.

Stepping Stone 2to has now also set up a blog, and Facebook page where members can share their achievements with others, and help widen awareness of their abilities, and the kinds of issues they may face on a regular basis. By doing this it not only helps to develop coping strategies, or solutions to these issues, but helps to change negative perceptions people may have of them.

Fun and laughter are an essential ingredient within the charity, and the environment is relaxed and unthreatening.

Why not pop in and see if its for you?  All are welcome.
