First Step Community Events team

First Step’s culture and values go beyond operating a market-leading estate agency to embrace a wider sense of our place in the community. We believe that one of this area’s main attractions is its sense of community. We are committed to giving back to those around us by supporting worthy causes.

David & Jules


We are not just about donating and moving on, we also like to get involved and see where we can help best. You will find David and Jules at most events if not some of the team will always be there to represent us. We enjoy giving back as much as taking part and so far, we have donated over £38,000 to local projects. If it’s possible to help and will benefit our local areas First Step will always do what we can to help.
