Community

Beta Safety Systems proudly supports our local community, including an inspiring young person’s charity, Step by Step.

Step by Step was formed over 30 years ago and they operate in six counties in the South of England. They believe that every young person has the right to a safe place to live and the chance of a bright future. Their mission is to support young people facing adversity, particularly homelessness, by empowering them to reach their full potential.

Their services include accommodation, counselling, personal development, life training, family mediation and mentoring. We believe that if a young person must face the anguish of leaving their home, they should not have to forfeit their dignity, their sense of worth or their life opportunities.

We recently sponsored Step by Step’s “Sleep Out” on Friday 21st June, which encouraged participants to give up their bed for a night and endure the cold, hard floor of Aldershot Town FC’s stadium terraces. This family-friendly event raised awareness and funds to support local young people facing homelessness and other challenges. It was a tough night, and no-one got much sleep, but participants were entertained by an outdoor cinema screening, live music, wood-fired pizzas and fun activities.

This event raised over £16,000 with a record number of attendees enjoying good weather and a buzzing atmosphere.

Beta Safety Systems Managing Director, Alan Faulkner, said “We are delighted to sponsor Step by Step’s 2019 Sleep Out. As a local company, we are passionate about supporting the local young people to reach their full potential. Step by Step does incredibly important work and we are proud to be working together to make a difference to the community.”
