We Provide High Quality Day Opportunities For Adults With Disabilities

Thank you for visiting the New Directions Support Website


We have read the government advice on Covid-19

We know that people with a learning disability are included in the list of people who are vulnerable and must be careful about their social distancing measures.

We originally closed the New Directions Support building based service on Tuesday 17th March 2020 when we started running an alternative service. Then from mid-July 2020 we have started to run a restricted service in our buildings for small groups of people, making sure our buildings are Covid-19 secure and using strict social distancing measures.

However at the moment we can't take everyone back and so we are are still running an alternative service and providing support to our service users and carers - Unfortunately at this moment in time we are unable to take new service users but please call Jill for any help - 07852368155.

Despite this difficult time we are determined that New Directions will continue to provide all the quality services that you expect once the pandemic is over. We look forward to seeing everyone back in our buildings again as soon as possible.

Take care everyone and stay safe.

"Thank you for all the hard work you put into the production of 'Alice in Wandering About Land' - It was a really great performance and we all thoroughly enjoyed it."

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"
