Community Services

New Outlook can support service users to access a range of activities in their local community. The aim of the service is to enhance the life experiences of people  who are not currently taking a full and active part in their local community because of their disability. The activities vary from escorting people to social groups, leisure activities,  current affairs, a visit to the pub, cinema or concert,  IT training, employment and volunteering. Our community service  can offer a great opportunity for adults to try out new activities  surrounded by supportive and experienced staff.
