STEP uses tailored questions to help parents quickly build a picture of their family’s strengths and highlight any areas that may need more attention. STEP will also inform the development of effective, helpful and timely Adoption Support Services nationally.

The webinar will describe the pilot scheme and the process families can follow to join the scheme. This pilot is only available to families who are resident in England. If after watching this webinar video you are interested in finding out more about STEP or taking part in the pre-pilot activity please email: [email protected]
