Interestingly I moved on to attend another STEPS celebration...

This was a fairly unique event which reached 26 women from a variety of nationalities and cultures and it was organised as a partnership event between REEMAP, Children's Services and Education Leeds at St Augustine's Church Hall on Harehills Lane. It is important that as we continue to deliver brilliant outcomes for all our young people we never forget the key part played by parents and carers. The STEPS programme reaches the parts that others can't reach and simply listening to these women makes you feel humbled by the amazing work my colleagues are doing to release this energy, this potential and this magic.

We must continue to run these programmes and increase the number of trained facilitators like the three talented, brilliant, gorgeous and wonderful women who spoke today about their experience of STEPS and how it had changed their lives.
