New Roots is a housing project which offers a high standard of accommodation with support to homeless or vulnerably housed young people in Bassetlaw. We provide a generic service to more than 30 young people in dispersed units across the area.
We offer support to both single young people aged 16-21, and also to young parents aged 16-19. Priority will always be given to those aged between 16 and 17.
We offer a package of good quality accommodation partnered with individually-tailored support plans. These are reviewed regularly to ensure your plan is working for you and can be reviewed any time at your request.
We also offer a regular programme of activities to encourage our young people to build confidence, learn new skills, and get involved in the community.
Ultimately, it is the aim of New Roots to support all service users to develop independent living skills and make the transition to suitable and permanent accommodation. The length of stay depends upon individual need, but can be anything between 6 months and 2 years.
In addition to our experienced staff team, New Roots receives support from a dedicated Management Committee who are drawn from all sectors of the community.
