“Making a lasting and positive difference to the lives of vulnerable young people”

2SB North is in the process of ceasing trading. To learn more of what we independently could offer you in terms of business and project development on consultancy basis, contact Lara Millar at lara@2sbnorth.co.uk, 01670 857621 or 07540725208.

Safeguarding, personal development and achievement are at the heart of the services we provide.

2 Step Beyond

Working in partnership with local authorities we provide solutions to the range of challenges young people meet as they take on the responsibilities of living independently. We specialize in working with vulnerable 16 – 18 year olds whose complex needs and challenging behaviour may prevent their smooth transition to independent accommodation and place their safety and wellbeing at risk.

We are experienced in working with young people who are in the Looked After system, many of whom are preparing to leave care.

We believe that every individual deserves the support that enables them to make positive changes no matter what their circumstances or their lifestyle choices. We accept each referral on its own merits.

“2SB’s been the one consistent thing in my life this year....I’ll miss them.” “2SB have given me more support than anyone else – ever” (Taken from 2SB’s placement feedback forms)


Furnished accommodation – comfortable surroundings in which to learn and grow.

“Young people have told us, for example, that if they are not settled in a good placement, they are more likely to spend time out and about and at risk of getting into trouble” (Looked-after Children: Third Report of Session 2008-09  from the House of Commons Children, Schools and Families Committee)


Opportunity to develop living skills and achieve successful independent living.

“We believe every young person has the right to be given the chance to come alive to opportunity; to develop, change and to achieve” Lara Millar (Founder and Director of 2 Step Beyond Ltd.
