About Us

The New Leaf Initiative is a non-profit organisation that supports people with multiple and sometimes complex barriers to employment, including homelessness, substance addiction, mental health, disabilities, and criminal convictions. Our clients come from all walks of life, and so do we. We hire people from a wide variety of backgrounds, diverse characteristics and lived experiences, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger.

We operate an open, supportive, flexible and honest working environment, where we celebrate team members contributions, but are also not afraid to challenge and question where appropriate.

Through our unique peer-led model, New Leaf provides holistic and person-centred support to people who wish to improve and change their lives, working closely to build relationships with those accessing our services.

Our long-term vision is to enable clients to access sustainable employment in a career of their choosing, which is proven to reduce reoffending, and which is achieved through three key stages:

Stabilisation – identifying needs and empowering people to overcome barriers to enable stability in their lives

Upskilling – working with clients to provide them with the skills, training, education, and qualifications needed to enter employment

Employment – identifying and connecting with employers to access employment, with the provision of ongoing in-work support.
