Opening Doors, Opening Minds.
Since 1995, New Horizons Partnership Ltd. has been a committed Community / Voluntary organisation; wholly funded by the Western Health & Social Care Trust (WHSCT) (Learning Disability) in Northern Ireland to provide services of excellence to school leavers and adults of all ages with learning disabilities; supporting and equipping each referred individual with the appropriate skills, knowledge and confidence required to enrich and improve the quality of their lives and the lives of their families. This is done through providing accredited training and enrichment learning opportunities – both in the classroom and through meaningful ‘hands on’ Community placement experience(s) which, if possible, can progress to supported paid employment in the open labour market locally.
Providing clients in the classroom or in real life settings (sheltered in the first instance – i.e. within the organisation); with work competencies and specific vocational and life skills through structured and quality – assured training.
Clients follow a realistic and achievable vocational path through placement experiences and opportunities with employers / businesses close to their own homes; trained, inducted, supported and monitored by our Community Services Team.
Specialised learning resources
For organisations which provide training and services to individuals with learning disabilities, appropriate learning resources, we acknowledge, are relatively difficult to find.
