About the Waves New Beginnings Service
New Beginnings is delivered by The Whitechapel Centre; the project gives people with multiple needs the opportunity to learn new skills, begin working towards a qualification, voluntary work or employment.
By offering a flexible, informal environment, co-produced with service users, it can help provide a focus and sense of achievement.
We recognise that clients often want to be occupied at evenings and weekends when traditionally other services are not available. Once we understand what our clients are interested in, we work hard to make it happen.
Our emphasis is on supporting clients to gain the motivation, confidence and practical skills to progress into mainstream activities, learning, volunteering or employment.
Like all other services in the Waves of Hope programme, we offer high levels of support and a person-centred approach which allows clients with multiple and complex needs to engage in activities they have a keen interest in and to progress at their own pace.
