What we do

Treating Trauma

We provide therapeutic intervention for young people who have experienced early life trauma and where crucial care has been compromised. Often such input need not be lengthy but, more importantly, tailored to each individual’s needs. Our approach is child centred and typically includes primary carers, either in a support capacity and/or periodically as part of the intervention process.

Frontline Services

We work with professionals in social work, foster care, residential homes, schools and other settings who are faced with a range of issues regarding children, young people and their families. We improve safeguarding and facilitate change in areas such as: access arrangements, supporting transition into care, developmental trauma, PSB solutions, foster carer support, complex sibling dynamics and court reports.

Problematic Sexual Behaviour (PSB)

Reactive or atypical sexual behaviour can be an issue for children and young people. It is one that should not be ignored or minimised but responded to promptly. Assessments and therapeutic intervention, tailored to each child or young person, are essential for enduring change and a healthy future.

Additional New Ways Programmes

As well as the main PSB and therapeutic programmes, New Ways offers several additional programmes that can be delivered on a ‘standalone’ basis or as complementary components to core work. These options are a response to the diverse nature of behavioural problems facing children and young people in today’s fast-paced, technological world.
