Our services are free to charge for women living in Luton who have suffered abuse, are vulnerable due to substance misuse, offending, or mental health; or who have involvement with Children’s Social Care. We also run specific services for women living in Bedford and Central Bedfordshire.
Women can either self-refer/drop in or can be referred from a partner agency. If you want to make a referral or come and see us, more information about accessing our services can be found under ‘get support’.

Stepping Stones works with mums and their families to develop parenting skills and confidence and/or supports women involved with Children’s Social Care.
Stepping Out was piloted in 2016/17 thanks to funding from Bedfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner. It is no longer running in 2017/18. However, we have successful in obtaining funding from the Government’s Tampon Tax to provide support to women affected by abuse and trauma in Central Bedfordshire. The new programme is expected to launch in Autumn 2017. Further information will be posted as plans progress.
