How does it work?

If you join our programme you will set your own goals, for example: learning to drive, ordering food from a take away and using public transport.

Our Futures manager will help you to find ways to achieve your goals. 

 

We offer weekly zoom sessions to help develop friendships, peer support and the opportunity to meet experts in community.

We also have fun as that is always the best way to learn anything!

Some of our recent work includes supporting members find paid employment, pass their driving test, build confidence in taking holidays with friends, as well as raising awareness of important issues such

as online scams and staying safe while out and about.
