Steph is a compelling believer in building on people’s strengths, their knowledge base of resources, life skills and capabilities to empower people to develop their full potential, and enrich their lives in a safe and healthy environment.  Steph provides practical tools, relevant information and support to create positive change, especially for families with children aged 0 to 18 years.  Steph also provides information around child and adolescent safety, and as a Safe Sleep educator this includes minimising the risk of Sudden Unknown Death of an Infant (SUDI).
