Our team

Join Us



Paul Turnor and Dave Schumacher are respected for their dedication to supporting charity work in our community. They are both passionate about helping others to achieve a better life and a better future. Not satisfied their efforts were achieving the results they desired, they came to the conclusion that a more consistent and collaborative approach was required. In October 2013 their dreams began to transform into a plan, a bold plan to establish a major local charity organisation, which will deliver on many different levels.

In early 2014 Paul and Dave began drawing together a Board of like-minded professional individuals who share their dream and support their vision. This Board is committed to seeing real, positive changes in our local community, and is determined to work hard to achieve the STEP mci vision.
