New Ethos Nottingham: Building Bridges to Independence in Supported Living


At New Ethos Nottingham, we believe that fostering semi-independence for individuals facing life transitions is crucial. Our innovative approaches in supported living are designed to make a significant difference for ex-offenders, and others overcoming personal struggles.

The Concept of Semi-Independence

Semi-independence is about providing a balanced blend of support and freedom. It allows individuals to develop essential life skills while still having a safety net. This method is particularly effective in supported living environments where the goal is to prepare residents for complete autonomy.

Personalised Support Plans

One of our most effective strategies is the development of personalized support plans. These plans are tailored to the unique needs of each service user, focusing on areas such as:

  • Life Skills Training: Teaching budgeting, cooking, personal hygiene, and time management.

  • Emotional and Mental Health Support: Providing access to counseling and mental health services.

  • Employment and Education: Assisting with job searches, resume building, and educational opportunities.

Technology in Supported Living

Integrating technology into our supported living environments significantly enhances the experience for service. Our Apps and online platforms will be used for:

  • Skill Development: Interactive tutorials and courses on various life skills.

  • Health Monitoring: Tracking physical and mental health metrics. Coming soon

  • Community Building: Social platforms to connect with peers and support groups. Coming Soon

Community Integration

We emphasize community integration by building relationships with local businesses, volunteer organizations, and community centers. Activities such as community gardening, local events, and volunteer work will help service users feel more connected and engaged.

Success Through Peer Support

Peer support programs have shown great promise in our supported living settings. Service users who have successfully transitioned to semi-independence offer guidance and encouragement to new residents, fostering a sense of community and shared purpose.

Future Directions

The future of supported living at New Ethos Nottingham lies in continually adapting and evolving our innovative practices. Research into new methods, ongoing staff training, and resident feedback are key components in improving our service delivery.


By embracing innovative approaches and focusing on semi-independence, New Ethos Nottingham provides individuals with the tools they need to succeed. The journey from dependence to independence is a challenging one, but with the right support and resources, it can lead to a fulfilling and autonomous life.
