Hello. We’re Nueva Vida

Our mission at Nueva Vida is to create a new positive life for the young people in our care. We will treat them as unique individuals and will respect their wishes, rights and dignity. The Nueva Vida family will endeavour to have a positive fun and loving approach to all young people so they feel that they have a sense of belonging and a place they can call home.

Nueva Vida children’s services aims to provide the highest level of care and service to enable young people to have support for a new life and thrive in whatever they do. We want to create a Safe Haven for these young children, so they feel protected and cared for.
