New beginnings North East Website
New Beginnings provides support to adults with learning disabilities to live in their own homes and participate in the community. This might be up to 24 hours a day support by a full time staff team e.g. in independent supported living scheme or contracted hours per week by a support worker e.g. in Outreach work where the person still lives in the family home.
Our aim is to enable people with learning disabilities to live full and purposeful lives in their community and develop a range of activities including leisure interests, friendships and relationships, spirituality and education.
We do this by
Providing a setting in which living, learning, development and planning can take place within a caring and constructive environment.
Identifying with service users and looking at issues from their prospective.
Working alongside Service Users as partners while abandoning any ‘Us and Them’ attitudes.
Helping to create opportunities for Service Users choice, participation and involvement.
Supporting and helping Service Users to develop their skills and to participate in meaningful activities with whatever assistance they require.
Helping Service Users to connect with their community.
Giving Service Users the same status as any other valued member of the community.
Complying and seeking to exceed the standards and regulations of the C.Q.C. local authority, Supporting People, Valuing People and the Housing Corporation.
