Future 4 Me supports care leavers at the highest risk of homelessness and social exclusion - young people who are the least likely to succeed without the right support. They have had to learn to survive at a very young age and often lack a stable family network.
This project “walks with them” through their transitions into adulthood, providing intensive support and mentoring, access to housing, education, training and employment opportunities.
Help to spread the word!
