Stepping Stones DS is a charity that
receives no statutory funding.
We would love to hear from you if you would like to support us in any way.
Make a donation
We do not charge our members as we believe that there are enough extra costs involved with bringing up a child with additional needs, and also we do not want costs of an activity to prohibit any of our members from attending.
Because of this we have to raise thousands of pounds every month to keep running. We rely on the kind donations of supporters and our members’ fundraising efforts to keep running.
If you would like to make a one-off or regular donation to Stepping Stones DS the quickest and easiest way is through our Just Giving page.
Alternatively, please email us for details of where to send a cheque or for our bank details for a Standing Order.
