Transforming Lives at NEN: Empowering Ex-Offenders with 3 Remarkable Properties

At New Ethos Nottingham Housing (NEN), our mission is clear: to provide a second chance, a fresh start, and a supportive community for male ex-offenders aged 21 to 50. Through our dedication and unwavering commitment, we've expanded our vision, and today, we're excited to share how we've come a long way in achieving our goals.

Our Remarkable Journey

When we began our journey, we started with two properties, which were nothing more than shells awaiting a new purpose. These buildings represented both a challenge and an opportunity. Today, as we look back, we can't help but feel proud of how far we've come.

Turning Shells into Homes

The transformation of these properties has been nothing short of remarkable. Our dedication to quality shines through in every aspect of our renovation process. The once-empty walls have been brought to life with new plastering. The heart of any home, the kitchen, is now a modern and inviting space. Bathrooms have been revamped to offer comfort and functionality.

But it's not just about the physical transformation. It's about creating a space that feels like home. From the moment you step inside, you're greeted with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We believe that this sense of belonging is vital to our residents' journey towards reintegration.

The NEN Difference

What sets NEN apart is our commitment to not just providing a place to stay but creating an environment where lives can be rebuilt. Our three properties now offer a total of 15 beds, allowing us to support even more individuals in their quest for a fresh start.

Beyond just the physical spaces, we've created an ecosystem of support. An on-site office ensures that residents have easy access to the resources they need. A designated smoking area provides a safe space for relaxation. But perhaps most importantly, we've fostered a sense of community where individuals can lean on one another for support.

Life at NEN

Life at NEN is more than just the physical properties; it's about empowerment and transformation. Our properties offer full Wi-Fi access, allowing residents to stay connected with the world. A washer-dryer eases the burden of laundry. And the stocked fridge, filled with surplus food, ensures that no one goes hungry.

The journey of an ex-offender is not an easy one, but at NEN, we're determined to make it a bit smoother. Our properties provide a stable foundation upon which individuals can rebuild their lives. We believe that everyone deserves a second chance, and we're here to offer it.
