About Bethany Ainsley

I founded Nouveau Wellbeing CIC after identifying a lack of suitable provision and an ever increasing need within local communities.

I founded Nouveau Wellbeing CIC after identifying a lack of suitable provision and an ever increasing need within local communities. In 2008 Nouveau was established to encourage increased fitness levels, personal development and healthy lifestyle choices – helping people and communities of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to feel positive, be active and live well.

Before establishing Nouveau I graduated with a first class BA hons degree in Contemporary Dance and have also completed a PGCE in Dance Education and Masters in Professional Dance Practice. I am a graduate from the School for Social Entrepreneurs in London and UnLtd Big Venture Challenge winner 2015.

Nouveau has grown from strength to strength over the past several years with the support of our fantastic team. I have been fortunate to receive several awards including Ernst & Young Future 50, The Gazette Chief Executive Awards – North East Young Business Person of the Year, and David Goldman Prize for Innovation with Newcastle University Business School.
