New Roots Housing Project 2019

New Roots is a housing project which offers support and accommodation to homeless or vulnerably-housed young people in Bassetlaw.

New Roots works with some of the most disadvantaged children and young people in Bassetlaw. Their needs are very complex and they often have experiences of childhood trauma through poverty, abuse, neglect and rejection. This can lead to self harm, poor mental health, low self esteem, and emotional and behavioural dysregulation. New Roots provides safe, secure and supportive environments which support young people to build their confidence, self esteem and emotional resilience as well as develop their goals and aspirations for the future. This enables young people to believe they can achieve and transition effectively to adulthood and independence.
