John Montague


I have worked in the social business and impact sector for 25 years and in that time have had the privilege of working with many inspirational and impact-driven organisations.

I first met the team at Steps following a Young Enterprise event held at Leicester City football ground in 2003. At that time Steps was early in its journey looking to find and purchase a permanent home for the charity. I was hooked, with both the challenge and the positive impact Steps could deliver to Children and families with a permanent and dedicated facility.

Some 21 years later, I am still involved and just as excited and amazed at the work and success Steps has in changing young lives and their families for the better.

Clerk to Trustees

Dave Andrews DL

I’m both a former Deputy Headteacher and broadcaster with the BBC – having covered many stories of significance to Leicester and Leicestershire whilst at the Corporation. Since 2015 I’ve  been privileged to act as a Deputy Lieutenant of Leicestershire and it was in this role that I first became aware of the amazing work of Steps, having been encouraged to visit by fellow DL and Steps Trustee Rosemary Conley. 
As a result of several visits I became incredibly interested in, and impressed by, the way in which the conductive education methods impact the lives of the children and the families who use Steps. 
I was honoured to be subsequently asked to join the Board of Trustees and I hope I can play my part in supporting and promoting the inspirational work of the Steps practitioners.
