Beautiful New Beginnings CIC 

Was founded in 2016 by Carolyn Whitehead following the birth of her third child. A primary school teacher by trade specialising in teaching Early Years, Cal recognised a need for increased parental support in order to support child development. With her SENDCo qualifications, she also clearly saw the lack of support for parents around Additional Needs and Disability and the impact this has on the whole family. Carolyn has created a community across Merseyside and beyond with both in person and online services supporting families in their knowledge and understanding, bridging the gaps between parents and professionals and providing welcoming, friendly, educational spaces where families and children connect, where social isolation is reduced and where learning through play and relationship is at the forefront of our offering.
