Our People

If you pop in to see us, one of our team will be on hand to say hello

Jennifer Fear


An embodiment of our ethos, Jennifer is a champion of equality, actively challenges discrimination, and is committed to ensuring every section of the community has access to support services that respond to their needs.

In 2017, Jennifer received a Civic Award for “improved quality of life for local people by providing services, beyond what they are paid to do”.

Sir Ian McKellen


“I’ve lived in Tower Hamlets for 40 years. When I came across Step Forward I was so impressed. It’s a lovely building to visit, it’s very friendly, it’s clearly very efficient, it’s very clean, it’s not bureaucratic. It’s about contacting people on their level, and I’m full of admiration – I feel I ought to be working here 12 hours a day. But I can’t do that, so instead, I give them my support.”
