Positive Futures Homes

The highest standards in residential care
Supporting young people

What is Positive Futures Homes?

Positive Futures Homes is a new social enterprise dedicated to providing the highest standards in residential care for young people and investing in their long-term positive futures. We believe in helping every young person to achieve their potential, regardless of circumstance, and Positive Futures Homes will further enable us to do that by offering:

  • The highest quality home away from home
  • A friendly and experienced staff
  • Unparalleled support

Residential Care for Young People

We plan to set the new standard in residential care for young people, and will
do this by having;

  • The best paid and trained staff
  • And the best possible homes in the nicest possible locations

We will also return the surplus funds to Positive Futures (PF) and Futures Futures Homes (PFH), helping us to help more young people. We want to ensure that we are safeguarding the future of our local young people, by safeguarding the future of our youth development services.

Positive Futures Homes will provide a holistic, wrap around service for our young people

We will do this by;

  • Delivering mental health provisions as standard
  • Our residents having preferential access to the services offered by Positive Futures such as counselling or family support
  • Providing access to all social, recreational or personal development provision going on at PF
  • Having a belief in delivering a morally and ethically sound service
    for young people who need it the most.

In addition to young people having access to the primary services on offer at Positive Futures, we will also work collaboratively with partners to support them.

“The youth workers are more like friends than staff. They don’t talk down to you, they treat you like an equal, but obviously still look after you at the same time.”
