Futures Project

Futures Project

FUTURES supports young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) who are aged between 15 and 25 through their transition from education into adulthood, enabling them to explore the world around by giving them the opportunity to try new activities and develop new networks.

FUTURES needs volunteers who can offer a couple of hours of their time each week to mentor the young people as they make choices about their futures, raising aspirations by exploring together the young person’s skills, interests and abilities.

What does a Volunteer Mentor do?

Mentors provide support to a young person with SEND to help them develop a personal profile of their skills and interests, their likes and dislikes and their future goals. The Mentor can then support the young person to start working towards these; this can include accessing volunteering, work experience and training opportunities, or social activities such as drama groups, sporting activities, shopping and eating out.

Who can become a Volunteer Mentor?

Mentors come from all walks of life. FUTURES needs people aged 16+. No experience is needed but patience, the ability to listen and a sense of humour are all useful skills.

What support does a Volunteer Mentor get?

Mentors receive full training and support; out of pocket expenses are paid. This can be a very rewarding role and also offers the chance to gain experience in the care sector.
