What’s New with Anew?

Strategic Plan 2022 – 2024

Our Strategic Plan identifies our primary stakeholders as pregnant women and new mothers, in particular those who are experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness. The service evolution of Anew clearly illustrates that even today the mere fact of becoming pregnant can often lead to a temporary crisis with many emotional and practical implications and a very high risk of homelessness.

As the main stakeholder, Anew keeps the mother and baby as the top priority and through its unique service Anew’s main objective is to improve post-natal outcomes. This is achieved by ensuring that pregnant women are supported through their pregnancy and early motherhood, practically through the provision of temporary accommodation and life skills and emotionally through key-working, peer to peer support and counselling.

A top objective is for a rapid exit from homelessness and a move to sustainable and safe long-term tenancy.
