First Step Project

Architects Without Frontiers and AWF Network Partners: Cox Architecture and WT Partnership, are thrilled to be working together in-kind on a new project with First Step.

Founded in 2000, First Step is a not-for-profit mental health, addiction and legal services hub in St Kilda. They strive to provide safe and effective pathways that help vulnerable Victorians suffering from addiction related illness to re-engage with their communities in a positive and constructive way.

First Step provides comprehensive, multi-disciplinary treatment, which includes a combination of medical, psycho-social, legal and vocational support services. Their team of highly qualified and experienced practitioners provide compassionate and non-judgemental care at no cost to patients, who are some of the most disadvantaged members of our community.

To increase their care capacity and impact, the project will undertake a strategic planning and feasibility exercise for the expansion of the current First Step headquarters in St Kilda.
