First Steps was originally run by volunteers and so they have always played a very important role in keeping the charity open and able to support people struggling with eating difficulties and disorders.

We believe that the opportunity to become a volunteer once a service user has recovered is very motivating and can help them keep on track within their own recovery journey.

Volunteers are always needed to help raise awareness and to fundraise, and we know that First Steps would not be as successful as it is without your help.
