Community Works is an exciting project funded by the Big Lottery and is unique to the Scarborough area
We run a series of workshops over a 12-week period where young adults have the opportunity to learn practical learning skills in a variety of areas including plumbing, electrical and woodwork.
Our learners are encouraged to work with residents in the community to undertake everyday jobs that help both the young adult and the resident. We support our learners to gain new skills and build confidence in a stimulating environment. Learners are fully supported during the 12-week sessions which take place at regular intervals throughout the year.
The sessions are run by tutors who have many years’ experience of working with young people, and usually run for 12-weeks.
The project is open to everyone aged 18-25 and there are no minimum requirements to join. We welcome anyone who enjoys practical work, our groups are small and welcoming.
Keep revisiting this page to see when our 12-week session begins. Our next one is set to run from June 2019.
An exciting opportunity to buy a bespoke piece of furniture created by our young people at budget prices.
Pieces can be bought through our Facebook Page or call to discuss having your existing furniture upcycled.
If you have any pieces you wish to donate, we can pick up and drop off too.
Putting their new skills to test, our young people are involved in worthwhile projects within the community.
If you have a community project you would like us to get involved with, contact us to see how we can help.
How it works
The work is rewarding and could be anything from a small household task to larger community project.
Community Works aims to make every learner feel valued through in-depth support and guidance. Everyone accessing the project has the same opportunities to thrive and improve their future prospects. Learners will be supported to fulfil their potential and challenge their own abilities.

Well, you can probably imagine it … we’re in the mini-bus, perhaps feeling just that bit too excited as we made our way to Carlton Lodge, near Thirsk. That’s where the sensibleness ended! So what does Carlton Lodge do? And why did we go? And, more importantly, did we...

I would recommend Futureworks to others as I love it here, I feel so welcome and I can talk about anything with anyone."
Futureworks is an ideal place for young people to find structure and confidential support outside of the family.
