James Griffin  – Lead Director


I come from a retail management background and wanted to be part of something that makes a difference within the local community. I have 4 children of my own and understand fully the difficulties parents face during holiday times and finding activities their children will engage with.

My vision is that New Directions will help many more families to become active and resilient.

Charlotte Cosgrove – Director


I have had project management roles within HSBC bank and still have a corporate career.

My vision is that new directions will help more people get active and act towards reducing and improving service users mind health.

Rebecca Kane  – Creative Director


I have had an extensive career within Dance and Martial Arts Industries. My role within New Directions is to think creatively and put together programmes that will engage with service users who would not normally get involved in physical activity for a variety of reasons, econnomic or health.

My vision is to make physical activity and group activities accessible to all.




Our mission is to provide early intervention for vulnerable children and adults. Our services develop, self esteem, build resilience and support emotional wellbeing in a fully inclusive environment.
