The Changing Futures project is designed to transform the lives of people across Lancashire who are struggling with multiple and complex barriers.
What is the Changing Futures project?
AFC Fylde Community Foundation have been a delivery partner in Lancashire’s Changing Futures project since 2017. Changing Futures is part of the nationwide Building Better Opportunities programme, funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and The National Lottery Community Fund to help tackle the poverty and social exclusion faced by the most disadvantaged people in England.
All participants are out of work and at high risk of social exclusion, such as people from BAME communities, people with physical or mental health problems and people with learning difficulties.
We work with each participant as an individual. Our Transformational Coaches help each participant to understand their own abilities, skills and interests to identify ways to help address their multiple barriers to economic activity.
Within 3 years, the Changing Futures partnership aims to support 1000 people over the age of 15 to overcome multiple and complex barriers and move closer to employment, education or training. We are proud to be part this specialist partnership of social enterprises and community organisations whose work is transforming lives across Lancashire.
Our partnership’s most recent quarterly results show that Changing Futures has already supported 867 people with multiple and complex barriers to work. As a direct result of the support received from this project, 85 people have overcome the challenges they were facing and are now employed, self-employed or in training.
