New Directions Support

At New Directions Support we know that it can sometimes be hard for people with disabilities to find meaningful structured activities when they leave school or college, where they can continue to make friends and develop their skills through their adult years.

We provide a wide range of structured, enjoyable and supported activities throughout the week. These include

  • Activities in our dedicated workshop
  • Technology Sessions (computers)
  • Art, with our own in-house artist
  • Independent Living Skills at our own Life Skills Centre
  • Drama
  • Active sessions - including sports and rambling

New Directions Support began in 2013 and as a charitable company is run by a board of trustees. We operate from two venues, our main one is in the centre of Stafford and we also have our own life skills centre at Beaconside. All our staff are passionate about supporting people to achieve their individual outcomes. Please contact us for more information about the great activities we offer and to arrange a visit.
