A charity which has worked with children with special needs and disabilities for almost 30 years is mobilising its supporters in the face of financial challenges.

First Step has helped hundreds of Havering families since its foundation in 1988, and as the charity looks to the future, it is hoping to reconnect with all those who have been touched by its work, or supported it.

The Tangmere Crescent, Hornchurch, charity is seeking to form a ‘Friends of First Step’ group and will host an introductory meeting on Tuesday, October 10.

Open to all, the event, from 7-9pm at First Step’s centre, will reveal more information about the initiative, and offer the opportunity for guests to share their ideas and opinions.

First Step relies almost wholly on donations from the public.

If you would like to attend the meeting, or can offer any support, email fofs@firststep.org.uk or call 01708 556355.
