Positive Futures means different things to different people but, at our core, we are a charitable youth organisation based in Liverpool who works with young people to give them access to support, guidance and opportunities.
We aren’t new kids on the block, in fact we have been going now for over 10 years and we are proud of our achievements. From giving young people access to some pretty awesome opportunities through our Comic Relief funded Building Futures and National Citizen Service programmes, to helping on a one-to-one basis to overcome personal issues and challenges.
We pride ourselves on being friendly, trustworthy and slightly mad – in fact, Positive Futures was once described as being “as mad as a box of frogs” in a Government report which we are particularly proud of! But most of all, we are passionate. Passionate about the young people we support, passionate about our work and passionate about our local community.
As a youth organisation, Positive Futures is constantly evolving and adapting to suit the needs of the young people who we support. We are there 24/7, 7 days a week (okay we do take a break to sleep but you get the gist). In the last year alone we have engaged with over 2,717 young people and spent almost 24,000 hours working with them – impressive? We think so!
We have some really exciting plans for the coming year which includes moving to a new home – somewhere where young people can come and access support from our amazing team, attend one of our many weekly activities or just call in for a brew and biscuit.
We will also be looking to expand our delivery to work with even more young people in Liverpool, and we plan to hit the road with a new set of wheels to reach even more people, in even more areas of Liverpool.
