Job Information

Step One was previously known as St Loye’s Foundation and its subsidiary Community Care Trust (CCT).  The two charities merged in 2015 because of increasing recognition of the links between support for people with disabilities and mental health conditions.  We provide support to people across the South West and our head office is based in Exeter.

Step One supports people to manage their mental health, achieve employment goals and live more independently. We encourage people to take a first step to being in control of their future and fulfilling their potential.   Our services include mental health crisis care and recovery, and one-to-one mentoring in employment and independent living skills.  We work with a diverse range of people who may have a mental health issue and/or a hidden disability such as an autism spectrum condition.

Our staff work in the community and at our dedicated facilities including a newly refurbished hospital and supported living residences.  We have an annual income of about £3m and our diverse services are commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions, South Devon and Torbay Clinical Commissioning Group, Devon Partnership NHS Trust, and local authorities.

We are now looking to appoint an additional Trustee to join our high performing Board and newly formed Quality Assurance and Improvement Committee.  Ideally you will be able to bring the experience and knowledge of the processes, practice and regulation that are necessary for the delivery of high quality health care ideally with a specific focus on mental health.  As an organisation, we constantly review our performance and impact, looking to continuously improve.  We need a Trustee who understands the importance of this and can support us to deliver those improvements and measure our performance.
