NEW VISIONS – Mild to Multiple learning disabilities

New Visions is a one of Gateway’s five-day services for adults 18+, we are based at harper square in Shaw, Oldham. New Visions is 4.3 miles from our main Gateway base in Rochdale and is easy to access via road or tram (Map). The Shaw tram stop is only 2 minutes from the day service and can be seen from the outside space of our building. The trams run every 10 minutes, which means it is very handy for accessing outdoor activities and socialising, which is great during the spring and summer months, making the most of the warm weather. Gateway took over management of the New Visions service in May 2017 from the Together Trust. Together trust felt they were unable to manage the service properly and efficiently due to their head office being based in Stockport. Various providers were contacted in a view to taking over the service, after consultation with the families of the individuals who attend having the final say in the decision-making process. The families chose Gateway! The New Visions team consists of 9 service users and 5 Staff, we are a small group of individuals which provides a warm and welcoming environment, the feedback we gain from visitors is always positive. We have gained close links with the local community and the PCSO’s. We enjoy providing new and exciting experiences and activities for all our individuals. We like to provide new friendships and watch existing friendships grow and flourish every day, making everyday matter. During the summer months the group are usually found in the grounds of the building either completing outside activities, barbeques, badminton, football, rounders, boules, netball or in the large greenhouse with our growing projects. We are working closely with ‘Get up and Grow’ this year, 2020, and have been awarded funding to provide some of our individuals with a qualification in horticulture! Some of our other activities that we take part in are: Cook and eat, rebound therapy, pitch and put, trips out, light stimulation, looking good feeling good, art and crafts, zumba, hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, bowling just to name a few.
