Steps for the Future has many friends who help the charity progress - because of this, we have decided to set up this "Friendships" page to acknowledge their help and support.

We will name our friends and say how they have supported us and they can let us know how we can support them.  We can mention on this page any events they would like us to feature - when, where etc.  We always contact our friends first to ensure they want to be named.  We hope our Friendships page soon fills up with all of our Friends and supporters and we can communicate lots of exciting things that may be happening that we can all get involved with.

If you would like to help and be named as a "Friend" of Steps For The Future, please contact us on 07534 120845 in the first instance or email us at


The fantastic Lee Hunter works with Steps to provide amazing Salsa classes with our students. Classes are every other week in the Monday class. See photos on our classes page.


The Liversage Trust was set up under the Will of Robert Liversage in 1529 for the relief of poverty. It is one of the very few medieval charities still in existence having been set up as an Alms-deed, a practice which ended in the 16th century. The Trust has maintained Almshouses since the 17th century.

Liversage Trust are our Landlord for our Offices on Nottingham Road and the Community Centre on Alice Street, where we run our dance and music classes.  Steps would like to thank them for all of their help and support.

They also have a Facebook page.
