Stick ‘n’ Step Vacancies

Stick ‘n’ Step provide free conductive education sessions to children with cerebral palsy. Support improves mobility, independence and boosts self-confidence, enabling each child to reach their personal potential. Conductive education is about active learning. Stick ‘n’ Step sessions incorporate play, exercise routines and songs to develop functional skills. Children and young people are motivated by working alongside their peers in a positive environment and are empowered to achieve realistic goals that are specific and relevant to them.

Operating from a centre in Wallasey, Stick ‘n’ Step currently provides vital support to 75 children and their families. 2017 will see the charity open a new centre in Cheshire which will enable it to reach out to more families across the North West of England. This is an exciting time to join Stick ‘n’ Step and there are three vacancies for people with the desire to develop and grow as part of this ambitious organisation.
