Steps is the national charity working for all those whose lives are affected by childhood lower limb conditions . Everything we do is about valuing and supporting individuals, families and carers affected by conditions which have an impact on the legs, hips or feet.
Steps offers confidential advice and support to people affected by hip dysplasia, talipes / clubfoot, Fibular Hemimelia, Tibial Hemimelia, PFFD, Perthes, SCFE/ SUFE and other rare childhood lower limb conditions that have an impact on walking.
We are the UK’s only national charity which supports the most common and much rarer conditions affecting the legs, hips and feet. Our valuable experience and respected medical board can help families make confident and informed decisions at what can be a confusing and difficult time.
We offer a wide range of services to help and support family, friends and individuals. We are continually developing resources and supporting research to reach more families, develop strong relationships with the NHS and raise awareness of the conditions we support.
We help families to consider their options, clarify any issues and help parents feel empowered to ask informed questions about their child’s care and prognosis.
