Care and Compassion

Our organisational values are based on one simple principle – compassion. 

Anew was built on the foundations of providing care and compassion, of providing a free and confidential service of care to all women and men regardless of race, colour, creed, martial status or age. At Anew we recognise and embrace the uniqueness of every human life, we are non-denominational and do not engage in any form of advocacy. 

We were established in 1981 to provide support and accommodation to pregnant women who were excluded and often left homeless. Over the last 40 years, Ireland has evolved and the needs of the women we support have changed. While there are women who still need our help, Ireland’s social environment looks very different and the needs of those we support reflect these changes. 

Recently, we are seeing an increased need for support in the areas of homelessness, parenting and maternal support. We are proud to be able to offer services in these areas based on the values of: 

Accountability

At Anew, we take personal responsibility for using our resources efficiently ensuring that we can achieve measurable results that are impact driven. We hold ourselves fully accountable to our supporters and partners, and, most of all, the women and children that we work with on a daily basis. 

Excellence

We know that our work should always be more than ‘good enough’ and make every effort to uphold this standard everyday. At Anew, we strive for excellence in all that we do across the services that we provide. We are of the opinion that the services we provide should be excellent because the women we support deserve nothing less.

Nurturing 

At Anew, we aspire to empower both our staff and those we work with to be the best version of themselves and reach their full potential. We think, feel, listen, see and understand those who access our services and know that safety, stability and nurturing are critical qualities of relationships and environments that make a real difference in growth and development.

Welcoming

Our team work tirelessly to provide a safe, non-judgemental space for the women and families who use our services. We endeavour to create an environment of trust, respect and reassurance ensuring that those we work with feel welcomed, accepted and appreciated while in our care.

Our values are based on one simple principle – caring and compassion for women and families
