As a CCG, we have  provided and continue to provide funding via a personal health budget to enable an individual to access STEPS just a year ago. His story has been one of our success stories. Prior to visiting STEPS he had been unable to access physiotherapy and hydrotherapy on a regular basis. Having the flexibility of a Personal Health Budget has meant he has been able to access services on a day and time to suit him. He has gained mobility and confidence and lost weight. The  team at STEPS have been amazing and supported him throughout his journey.

David Noblet • a residential client

To everyone at STEPS, A huge thank you for everything you did for my grandad – you helped him at a time when he thought all was lost! At the time he was not easy and struggling to adapt to life with a disability – your care and support helped him and us through this. A huge thank you for fulfilling my dream of my grandad coming to our wedding – Bev and Ed you were amazing – in fact Ed all our friends really loved your company!

You will be pleased to know grandad has MUCH improved – now eating with a knife and fork and drinking with a normal cup and standing with limited support! He is out and about in his scoote in his new flat which has onsite 24 hour support if needed. Again thankyou.

Love Jess and the rest of the family

Thank you all for five weeks of amazing high class care. Words cannot express how grateful we and all our family and friends are for your kindness and support.

Client's family

We would like to thank you so very much for all the brilliant care and attention you have shown to Ian in the time he has been with you. You have made his stay with you so very happy. You have been like a family to him and to us when we have visited. We can’t thank you enough for all you have done, all his family and friends have agreed what a fabulous place STEPS is.

Thank you again to all of you.

Client's family

Thank you so much for your time last week walking me around the STEPS Rehabilitation facility. I was left extremely impressed not just with the physical building and detailed ergonomics. However the ‘magic’ part that so many medical/rehabilitation centres fundamentally don’t get right….the  atmosphere, friendly, warm and inviting. Particularly in a brand new building a patient is allowed to put posters on the wall. Most wouldn’t get the significance of that simple message – so important.

Edward Stroud MSc BSc MCSP HCPC (L)RAMC • Head of Rehabilitation Injured Jockeys Fund

To everyone at STEPS,

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for looking after me so well after my operation and for allowing me to recover sufficiently well to be able to cope with looking after my husband (and myself!) when I got back home.

I will never forget the 5 days I spent with you and will definitely be coming back, even if only for physio.

You are all stars, I don’t want to single anyone out and each and every one of you did a perfect job.

Thank you!

Jo • a residential rehabilitation client

It’s been a few months since I started at STEPS. I have muscular dystrophy and hadn’t had any physiotherapy/hydrotherapy for a number of years on a regular basis so I felt low in myself and my health was deteriorating. Coming to STEPS has made me feel a lot better in myself. All the staff from Tom and Lottie at reception, to Lucy and Karen the physios, and all of the rehab assistants make you feel welcome and can’t do enough for you. I would highly recommend STEPS Rehabilitation

The trust bestowed on Alston Murphy, as Architects, has led to a very special relationship with the client which, in turn, has helped through the many ups and downs we’ve had to face in reaching this point. I have never known a client, let alone a first time client, that has had to cope with so many unforeseen difficulties in the course of a project. Their calmness, professionalism and sheer perseverance in the face of setbacks can only bode well for the care, support and attention that their prospective clients will enjoy during their stay in this lovely building

STEPS has the potential to become the prime facility for patients requiring the latest neurological rehabilitation care to achieve the highest level of recovery. It will bring more than 60 jobs to the area and regenerate the site which currently lies derelict

David Grey MBE • Sheffield City Council • Chair of the RGF Investment Panel

We guided STEPS, as a new developer, through the best, and most effective, way to structure the project using a development vehicle. The work concentrated on putting together all the legal documentation on the land purchase. This involved solving the tax issues for development costs as healthcare companies are exempt from paying VAT. STEPS management team are of the highest calibre and the project has all the attributes to eventually become a centre of excellence for neurological, orthopaedic and multiple trauma rehabilitation

Lisa Davidson • Wake Smith Solicitors • Director of Commercial Property

We have been delighted to see how this project has developed and look forward to seeing how this state of the art facility, under the guidance of a strong management team,  will assist those who need it most within Sheffield and the surrounding areas
