“High quality residential care for children and young people.”

Safeguarding_AboutUs_300px

New Horizons (NW) was formed by a group of professionals working both within and outside of the care sector who had become frustrated and disillusioned with the lack of positive outcomes and the quality of service available for some of the most vulnerable people within the “Child Looked After” system.

New Horizons (NW) Ltd strives to “create positive outcomes: for young people living within our homes. We deliver an individualised package of care to young people from a wide range of backgrounds.

Each of our homes acts as a ‘home from home’ where nurturing, social, emotional and moral needs are met by high levels of dedicated, experienced and highly trained staff who work to empower young people to enable them to make changes to achieve best possible outcomes available to them.

Our homes can cater for young people experiencing a range of difficulties including:

  • Challenging behaviour
  • Complex learning difficulty
  • EBD
  • Attachment disorders
  • ADHD
  • ODD
  • Aspergers syndrome
  • Dyspraxia
  • Multiple placement breakdowns
  • Suffering from crisis or trauma
