Horizons North East (Community Interest Company) believes that everyone has the potential to develop the motivation and competence to lead a fulfilling life if they are provided with the appropriate support and opportunities. Therefore, our aim is to create the right support environment and to assist each individual in gaining a realistic perspective on how to integrate into the community. We also believe that each individual is a deserving person with their own, unique needs. We respect their dignity and give them the opportunity to be themselves in a setting where they can feel safe and encouraged to lead full and active lives.
Ultimately, the ability to establish and maintain relationships is the key to social inclusion. In line with this, we not only embrace material needs but all aspects of a person’s life, taking into account social, educational and vocational skills, as well as recreational and leisure activities.
Accommodation is provided in well-specified, and maintained shared accomodation homes within the community. Our clients are guided by our support team as they take the step towards independent living and learn the importance of taking responsibility for their actions and plans for the future.
Each person’s needs are determined in consultation with our Welfare and Support Mentors. We consider each individual and make recommendations accordingly; therefore, the support program is entirely flexible. We provide a range of packages to meet the unique needs and objectives of the individual, always placing priority upon retaining a ‘roof over their head’.
Clients are able to live and learn life skills within the local community with the help of direct contact from our support team, clients are encouraged to make neighbours out of strangers and recognise that they have something to offer other people, and learn to appreciate what they can offer as well as what they may feel they need to receive.

It is our belief that well-being is a multifaceted term that describes the healthy, contented and prosperous condition we all aspire to. It can be used to describe a person, a community or a workplace and is applicable to both our physical and mental condition. As well as representing the most effective way of ensuring positive outcomes in our lives, it could be argued that well-being is one of the goals of human endeavour.
Ultimately, well-being is important for ourselves, our family and friends and is a vital component that allows us all to flourish in all aspects of life. Horizons North East have a unique concept of Engaged Prevention that brings together the ingredients needed for a successful well-being journey.
