Making a difference for parents and their children
Our Mission Statement
The New Beginning's mission is to work holistically with families who are known to Children’s Social Care for concerns relating to neglect; emotional, physical or sexual abuse.
We have learned that parents who find themselves in this situation have most likely experienced prolonged episodes of trauma, such as physical, sexual and emotional abuse, often within the home, at some point in their lives. These traumatic events can lead to issues with mental ill health as well as drug and alcohol misuse.
Our vision is to work closely with parents in the child protection process so that they can develop the strength, knowledge and power to become the parents they want to be and in return, teach other parents how to do the same.
We're Here to Help
The Butterfly Project offers a post programme support service for parents which helps with mental well-being, domestic abuse, loneliness, social isolation, benefits, housing and parenting issues.
We can deliver training for students, social workers and other professionals ranging from lectures and seminars to bespoke workshops. Our training is anchored in a trauma informed approach. We also accept social work students on placement. The New Beginnings team consists of qualified experienced social workers who are also trained Practice Educators.
If you are from a statutory organisation and you are in need of a service that offers tailored support to families in the child protection system, then we can help. The New Beginnings project works with parents to provide the best outcomes for their children.
