What We Do

Working in Partnership

First Step believes in the importance of partnership working. This is echoed in the way we support families and also the various agencies that we work with.  

In recognition of the work that we do at First Step we have had many visits from key professionals. Previous visits have included:
Dr Harry Burns (Chief Medical Officer for Scotland) 
Susan Deacon (Scottish Government Early Years Champion) 
Sir Peter Housden (Permanent Secretary of the Scottish Government)
Angela Constance (Previous Children’s Minister) 
as well as local council officials.

A major part of the work that we do is our role as service champion for Support from the Start, part of the Governments Equally Well initiative. Through this, many initiatives been introduced in First Step to meet the needs of our families. These have included the Sleep clinic, Nature Nurture programme and Social marketing, looking at Healthy food choices.
