The impact of positive futures
Every year, Positive Futures supports thousands of young people through one (or more) of our support services. Quite often, a young person will access multiple services during their time with Positive Futures. For instance, our weekly Open Access Sessions, one-to-one targeted support, detached services, family support or trips away. Get a flavour for some of our support and the impact of Positive Futures over on our news pages.
Because every young person’s journey is different, we need to take a personalised approach to our support. Our team of well-trained and passionate staff are on hand to help guide our young people. Above all, ultimately helping them to achieve their potential. To take a deeper delve into our impact, be sure to check out our Annual Report below.

“The children have really enjoyed participating in the sessions provided by Positive Futures.
It has helped to develop their social skills including team work, listening and talking confidently about their ideas. The children have also developed their self-confidence and created positive relationships with the adults delivering the sessions and their peers”
Building on our success
“The workshop was useful because it taught you how to control yourself and how to do things differently.”
We have lots of exciting plans for the future! At Positive Futures, we plan to continue to develop our specialised support services such as our Targeted Support. This will enable us to meet demand and support more young people. However, we are also launching Positive Futures Homes. This new venture will be dedicated to providing the highest standards in residential care for young people. Additionally, this will aid in investing in their long-term success with the help of Positive Futures.
This exciting growth will compliment our already well established youth development services. Our services are delivered from our youth space in Liverpool, in schools and out on the streets. If you wish to support us, you can do so over on our donation page.
