When I started, I was very anxious and did not get on with people or do well with anxiety. Amber has done amazing, working above and beyond for me. She has helped me come out of my shell. The things she has helped me with include getting my entry level maths and English. Helping get my daughter into Nursery. Helping me go to the Doctors and doing talk therapy at Crosslane. Helping me get into Scarborough Tec to study level 2 mental health awareness. Helping with getting a new house when my landlord was selling the home I was in. Always there for help and support when I was up and down with stress. My one to one with Amber was so helpful, she did not mind my daughter being there. She has made me feel better in myself and my life. I would not have got this far without her.
Futureworks is an ideal place for young people to find structure and confidential support outside of the famil
I would recommend Futureworks to others as I love it here, I feel so welcome and I can talk about anything with anyone.
Gabrielle came to us in 2017 through a referral from the Prevention team. She had been home schooled and hadn’t been doing much since finishing her exams, almost a year previously. Gabrielle had very low confidence and didn’t have many friends or really know anyone. From working together, we have taken part in lots of group activities and looked into Gabrielle’s future options and now she is at 6th form college and applying for Universities. The support service has helped Gabrielle’s confidence and she also now has a group of friends at college.

Famous for over 40 rides and lots of screaming … we can only be talking about Alton Towers! When we first thought about visiting this famous venue, we wondered if perhaps we'd had a bit of wacky idea … however, we’re heading off to the theme park later this month!...
