Our Mission: To provide a programme tailored to each person’s strengths, which supports their reintegration into the community free from dependency.
At New Beginnings we provide holistic care within a culture of dignity, compassion and equality where everyone feels valued, respected and has the right to choose.
Our approach is based on the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’ and our unique three community reintegration model. These two complementary approaches enable us to identify and build on the strengths that each person has to support their recovery and reintegration.

this through our multi-disciplinary team approach and by encouraging family involvement
throughout the process.
