Step Safe

Helping children
find their feet

Our Step Safe service is perfect for children and young people who are walking independently or with a frame, but have difficulty in negotiating the world around them when they are starting to walk after a brain injury.

Walking after a brain injury can be a real challenge for many children; they may find changes in flooring or surfaces difficult to manage. They may also be unable to step over or walk around obstructions. Climbing or descending stairs and curbs could be challenging, or they might have difficulty in looking down due to visual impairment or cognitive issues.

Whatever makes your child unsteady on their feet, our Step Safe sessions will improve their walking pattern and teach them strategies to help access new environments and help them to develop their ability to walk independently after a brain injury. Our Step Safe sessions will help your child to learn how to accept different surfaces, as they can practice moving around obstacles and build their stamina, as well as confidence in their own ability. 

Step Safe is all about reducing the need for hoisting by promoting a better attitude towards trying new things and gaining more independence.
