This programme empowers young people to realise their full potential and achieve independent living. A schedule of bespoke learning opportunities, work placements, supported housing and employment training, give our students all of the skills they need to achieve their life aspirations.
Students joining Futures Unlimited can complete vocational skills qualifications as part of their personalised programme. They also try living independently with support, so they experience what it is like to live in a community setting.
We are also there to help them to learn about managing money, make decisions about how they want to live and work, and also how to engage and have fun in their social lives.
The goal for each young person is to graduate from the learning programme with work (paid or non-paid) and a feeling of readiness to take the next step and live independently – with a future unlimited!
Futures Unlimited can be a one or two-year programme, depending on previous experience and level of existing skills and takes place over three days a week, with the potential for four or five days a week.
People aged 19-25 with an Education, Health and Care Plan, who want more independence, training, local work or community activity should email: Futures.Unlimited@autism-unlimited.org
We are launching our very own student portal. Watch this space for this exciting new development.
