Supervised Support Services

Life at NEN quote.png

New Ethos Nottingham 2 CIC provides stability and support/supervision for the socially excluded across the city of Nottingham and the east midlands. The organisation's primary focus is on those who are currently in touch with the criminal justice system "through the gate" and ex-offenders. We support/supervise individuals recovering from drug/alcohol misuse and the homeless. Enabling them to rehabilitate, regenerate, and reintegrate back into society, supporting/supervising them to live cohesively within their communities.

We help to shape individuals, so they are self-reliant and able to live independently. We help and encourage skills development, educational training, employment, debt management, handling of finance, and budgeting. We support/supervise their overall basic needs.

New Ethos Nottingham 2 CIC prepares our service users with life skills that will support/supervise and guide them towards reaching their potential.

As a service user you will be supported/supervised and allocated a key worker and in partnership with the relevant professional the flexibility to reduce or increase the support/supervision as appropriate. Key workers will promote independence, support/supervision, and wellbeing as well as taking into account your views and opinions as a service user, allowing you to lead decisions affecting your life.


Under carefully developed, and regularly reviewed, support plans, support workers will support the development of a range of life-skills including:

Moving from the criminal justice system and or specified accommodation into their own tenancy is a critical time for any person.

    • Helping the service user locate suitable accommodation. 

    • Assistance with their application for housing, Universal Credit, benefits, and               seeking training and or employment.
