At New Directions we have a long history of supporting individuals with learning disabilities and other vulnerabilities across Rugby.
Founded by families, our mission has always been to provide a range of accommodation and non-accommodation based services to meet the diverse needs of everyone we support throughout their lives.
Our services currently include day opportunities, respite, supported living, and residential care. We are proud to be the only respite provider in the county that supports individuals from the age of 16, and we also offer accommodation-based services across the town. Our various supported living accommodations often provide individuals with their first taste of living independently with support.
At New Directions, we understand that people’s needs change over time, which is why our model ensures that we can continue to provide accommodation options to everyone we support throughout their lives. As their needs change or increase, we want to be able to provide suitable accommodation that enables them to maintain their social connections and relationships.
Our residential homes provide accommodation and support for people with learning and physical disabilities, including those with higher needs. Our aim is to help them remain as independent as possible while receiving the care and support they need.
Daisy Court is our latest venture, built upon our experience of opening Poppy Place in 2016. Poppy Place is a beautiful residential home that enables the people we support to remain as independent as possible through to the end of their lives. We are confident that Daisy Court will continue this tradition, providing a comfortable and supportive environment for those who need it.
Construction began on Daisy Court in Autumn of 2022, and we are excited to announce that we have completed the build, and now have CQC registration.
Daisy Court is a contemporary and wheelchair accessible home, with 10 en-suite bedrooms spread across two floors. The building incorporates open plan lounge and dining areas, ensuring a spacious and inclusive environment. Each floor will accommodate five beds, complete with ensuite wet rooms and hoist-track systems for enhanced accessibility. We can’t wait to start moving residents into the property in early 2024.
We are overjoyed to share that Andrew Duffield, representing the Kimberley Trust, generously donated a cheque for £100,000 to New Directions which helped towards the build of Daisy Court. We were honoured to support both Trevor and Keith Kimberley over the years. In attendance at this momentous occasion were Paul Tolley (CEO New Directions), Adrian Canale-Parola (Chair of New Directions Board of Trustees), and Emma Daffey (Operations Manager, Residential Services). Paul and Emma were delighted to give Andrew and Adrian a tour of Daisy Court.
A heartfelt thank you to Andrew Duffield and the Kimberley Trust for their unwavering commitment to making a positive impact in our community. Together, we continue to create meaningful change at New Directions
At New Directions, we are dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of the people we support. We are committed to offering a range of services that enable them to live fulfilling and rewarding lives. We take great pride in what we do, and we will continue to work tirelessly to support vulnerable individuals and their families for years to come.
