As a Charitable Company we are able to provide excellent value for money. Our rates are extremely competitive and we constantly make use of a wide range of local community resources.

Comment from Carers

“Our son needs a structured environment and I can’t praise New Directions enough. It is an excellent service and if we didn’t have it I don’t know what we would do. He interacts with staff so well, and he does so much at new directions to help his personal development that I don’t have to worry”

"New Directions is an excellent service,I would not change a thing"
