Positive Futures are pleased to announce that we are one of several local youth projects to benefit from government and the Big Lottery funding over the next three years as part of the Youth Investment Fund. In total 86 projects nationally have become beneficiaries from this funding to enable the expansion of sports projects, create youth clubs, and increase the provision of support and guidance services for young people.

    CEO for Positive Futures Clare Corran said:

The Youth Investment Fund has enabled Positive Futures to secure our continued engagement, and invest in the futures of young people in Liverpool equipping them with new skills and providing new experiences to inspire. Our enhanced income will allow us to grow, to employ and create new enterprises to reach more young people so they can build a positive future for themselves.”

The funding has already enabled us at Positive Futures to begin to build our team for our continued growth. We are currently recruiting for Sessional Detached Youth Development Workers to join our dedicated team, to help us fulfil our pledge to increase our youth engagement through co-ordinated street detachment.

With the appointment of our newest Youth Development Worker,Tom Coates, we are reaching toward our first milestone to expand the scope of our Youth Development provision to include new areas in which to engage with young people.

“ I am really looking forward to strengthening the links and creating joint opportunities to benefit the young people in the area.”

I value working with colleagues in a culture that fosters inclusion, professional development and trust.

My experience of working in Schools, Youth Work and Children’s Services for many years has afforded me with the knowledge and ability to successfully work within this specific field and the wider professional environment.   

I have inspired others with commitment, enthusiasm and confidence, I am courageous with relentless energy and passionate in pursuit of the vision.

Having the ability to gain trust has enabled me to motivate young people into making the right choices, mentoring young people onto appropriate support and transition in schools, employment and semi-independent housing.

I have provided high quality levels of pastoral support to young people, giving advice and guidance to them therefore enhancing their personal development, I have reached out and extended this support to the families also.   

This role is very specific to my skills and abilities, recognizing that communication is key to working with families, discussing all options and strategies with parents getting them on board  to decide what will work best for the young people.   

Representing the organisation in a positive light, ensuring confidentiality of information, I am committed to the ethos of my employer I am also adaptable with a professional approach.
