Who can use this service?
The New Beginnings service is aimed at those who have had difficulty engaging with services or have been excluded from services in the past. It aims to end the pattern of people moving in and out of different services none of which fully address their issues.
The New Beginnings Project provides clients with a menu of formal and informal learning opportunities / activities with a long term aim of supporting clients into mainstream learning, volunteering and employment. Short term, we begin by building confidence and motivation as well as helping clients to learn new skills and increase social inclusion.
The staff team can offer support to help clients access existing group activities, but where these activities don't exist (or if they don't take place at a time and venue which meets the clients needs) then we can broker bespoke provision. If the client is not ready to take part in group activities then we can organise training on a one to one basis. We are also able to support clients to overcome barriers which might prevent them accessing services.
Activities provided have been co-produced in conjunction with Service Users as a group and on an individual basis. This ensures that learning and activities are tailored to individual needs.
