Our Values


STEP is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee.

We aim to put the community at the heart  of what we do by helping to build the capacity of local people and local organisations achieve their goals and make a significant improvement in the well being of the town and its inhabitants.

We recognises that regeneration can only work if people who are most affected by it are given the opportunity themselves to steer the transformation.

To date, the membership of the Trust has been restricted by invitation only, with all members acting as Trustees of the Board. However the Board aspires to become more open, participative and accountable to the community, and we are planning new arrangements for membership, election of trustees and governance in line with this ethos.

Plans for this transformation have already commenced and we will post regular updates on the News page of this site relating to how the community will be involved and consulted about this process.

We are committed to achieving equality in all aspects of our operation and opposed to all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination against groups and individuals, believing all should be treated with equal respect.
