Our Purpose

Your Future Education was created to supporting people with experience of: the justice system, care system, homelessness and/or sex work, who may have undiscovered and/or unsupported hidden differences to get the support they need to thrive. We do this by working in partnership with charities already supporting them, to offer a range of support to enable them to better access services, education and employment as well as developing the skills required to develop and maintain healthy friendships and relationships.


Our Values

We are committed to the excluded, giving hope, confidence and the skills to succeed are the essential values behind every action of Your Future Education.

Having literacy, numeracy, communication and organisation skills is often something we take for granted, many of the people we work for a variety of reasons have not acquired these skills that are so essential to be able to engage in the community.

YFE seeks to support those who have missed out to acquire the skills to gain sense of self worth, employment and relationships; we advocate for social change and we give voice to those suffering due to unsupported needs. We are committed to long term education support for the students of today who wish to become tomorrow's tutors and mentors.


Aims & Activities

Your Future Education exists to empower people who are excluded or are at risk of exclusion from society for a variety of reasons to gain hope and aspirations for the future and have the skills, confidence and support to rebuild their lives.

We provide:

  • Staff training for awareness / screening and support for Autism and SpLDs
  • Diagnosis for a range of differences that may be affecting their ability to access/succeed at education, employment and services
  • Therapeutic intervention to understand and support any diagnosis that may arise; for example Counselling and Social Communication training
  • Maths, English and vocational skills, on a 1:1 or small group basis in a quiet supportive environment with bespoke delivery and assessment methods
  • Case working to support their education and therapeutic needs and employment skills


We value the individual:

  • Our clients: Our support is based around the individual needs, strengths, likes, history and hopes. Support length and design is based on the individual.
  • Our volunteers: We value the input of every volunteer whatever the contribution.
  • Our staff: Can be themselves and talk about how they feel and think; we aim to create a supportive environment that considers individual well-being


We value working in partnership, innovation and best practice: we are committed to co-working and sharing knowledge to develop the most effective support for people who are suffering due to a lack of education and misunderstood needs. We want to continually improve the support we offer and value ideas and feedback from our clients. We also value learning from other services, policy makers, academics and our own research about ideas we can trial to complement our work. We seek to provide ongoing evaluation of the impact of our service.


We value integrity and transparency, we want everyone who comes in to contact with us to know where they stand and how we operate.
