Step Forward has received the overall 2011 GSK IMPACT winner award for its work to improve the health and wellbeing of young people in Tower Hamlets, London.
Step Forward is based in one of the most deprived parts of England where there are high levels of teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.
Every year, the charity helps thousands of young people overcome personal, social and sexual health problems. It provides advice, counselling, personal development and family support and a weekly sexual health clinic - taking referrals from education and health services.
During 2009, Step Forward helped over 2,000 young people from all sections of the community.
