StepFinder uses the power of mobile to help young people find the nearest support service to them.
Whether its contraception, homelessness, bereavement, mental health or anything else, StepFinder can pin-point local services and help you navigate to them using your phone.
It’s natural to be worried about visiting a support service for the first time. StepFinder takes away the stress with tips and advice from others who’ve used the same services. We show which organisations young people say are ‘youth friendly’ so you can trust you’re going to get a good service.
Designed by YouthNet, StepFinder is a totally free and confidential service.
So take control, and navigate to the right support.
Search or browse for your nearest service via postcode or GPS, from a list of over 2000 support organisations complete with contact details and info.
Read others’ tips about services you might visit – to help you prepare for your appointment. Also, submit your own tips and comments so others know what to expect.
Flip to camera mode and through augmented reality (AR) StepFinder will show services around you and exactly how to get to them.
StepFinder integrates with Apple maps to give you a step by step route of how to get there.
Share services you think will help others confidentially, via SMS or direct messages.
