Who are we?
New Beginnings Glos Ltd provides long and short term residential care to people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, those with mental health problems as well as those that are considered challenging to others. New Beginnings has over ten years of experience within the care sector with experienced staff working with our people within community settings throughout the Gloucester area.
Our intention is to practice the following…
- We put people who live at our homes first.
- We respect one another’s rights, aspirations and individuality.
- We work in partnership to develop one team.
- We as carers are professionals with valued ideas, beliefs and contribute ourselves towards the fulfilment of others.
- We aim to learn and develop as we strive towards achieving optimum results in the lifestyles within the home environment.
As part of our parent group, New Beginnings, we are able to provide a very individual service whilst providing all the benefits of belonging to a larger organisation.
What is New Beginnings all about?
We help people to be independent, make unique choices and live valued and meaningful lives. What sort of support can a service user expect from New Beginnings? Living with a New Beginnings home does not mean that people have to lose any skills or independence. In fact, we actively encourage people to try new things, learn new skills and live fulfilling lives. We do recognise though that some of our people will need some help to achieve their goals and day to day needs.
How easy is it for a service user to live at a New Beginnings home?
Normally a referral is made through a Social Worker, brokerage team or placing authority. Occasionally a referral can be made through a health service, GP or even families. A referral can even come from the user themselves!
When a referral is made to New Beginnings or one of it’s homes, a person from the organisation will visit to tell you more about the home, and ask what sort of things the individual would like to do and what support they would like. The individual would certainly be invited to visit the home to meet the staff and others who live there.
