Quote from Staff Feedback:

“I began working at New Horizons (NW), as a Team leader. Right from the start, from the very first email, I felt supported and confident that the company was about helping individuals to develop and progress. The training was over two weeks and was delivered in a friendly yet engaging manner, even though I had worked within the industry previously, I learned and developed new skills that I could call upon on a daily basis.”


Quote from Ofsted report – March 22

Children flourish as a direct result of the unwaveringly warm and nurturing care they receive from a skilled and dedicated team of staff . A child said I love them and they love me. They re my family, The stability and consistency both children are experiencing in this family environment are providing them with a strong foundation for their futures Children’s lives are transformed because of the consistently high standard of care they receive. Children with additional learning needs and barriers to communication achieve and thrive in a culture of high aspiration embedded in the practice of staff. Both children have made exceptional progress since coming to live at the home. A social worker said I m staggered at the progress [name of child ] has made. The home is a model for what residential care for children should be.
