We’re so thrilled to announce that Rock Stepper’s support of the incredible children’s charity, Starlight continues until the end of the year. This means you can help support Starlight’s mission, when you purchase your Rock Stepper play mat bundle, as for every five sold via Starlight supporters using their unique code, we will gift a Rock Stepper playmat bundle to one of Starlight’s play settings.
Starlight is the UK’s leading charity for children’s play in hospitals and hospices. Evidence shows that play has the power to reduce fear, pain and trauma during treatment and recovery from illness – boosting mental and physical health and resilience. Starlight works to ensure every child has the opportunity, space and time to experience play. They also undertake research and campaign to ensure children’s right to play is protected and provided for. This means they campaign for more and better, fully funded play services and play practitioners to be recognised and embedded within the NHS.
We are honoured to be in partnership with Starlight, enabling us to contribute to their vital mission of bringing the power of play to children who need it most.

“Rock Stepper wholeheartedly supports Starlight’s invaluable mission of championing the importance of play for unwell children in hospital. During these challenging times, play not only brings children joy and happiness but can help them to express themselves, encourage communication and combat their anxieties. We strongly believe in the power of play and understand the profound impact it can make on children’s lives. Our play mat endorses Starlight’s incredible cause and we are proud to be supporters of this wonderful charity. ” Nathalie – Rock Stepper Founder
