Newgrove Housing Association was set up in 1999 to provide for accommodation and independent living services for people with disabilities throughout the Rehab Group.
RehabCare setup Newgrove Housing Association in response to a defined housing need within the Rehab Group. Newgrove is built on the philosophy that everybody has a right to decent housing and in particular that people with special needs, need to live in a place where they can feel safe and secure. Newgrove is committed to developing a high quality service which meets the needs of each individual and expands the opportunities for people with disabilities to live in and be part of their own communities.
Accommodation is provided in Group Homes with on-site support services, independent accommodation units within a group home setting, also an accommodation service for persons with Autism with high support services
Newgrove supports people in more than 50 locations around the country.
The words of service users living in their new homes are testament to their success.
“You feel more independent here”.
“Great, you do your own thing”.
"We have a list, a budget sheet. I pick up my pension in the post office on a Thursday, I pay my rent into the bank, I pay for the shopping here”.
"I like my independence. They help me here to become as independent as I can. My goal this year is to move on further to another apartment I like company, I want to learn how to budget money" '
