FUTUREhope has always been, and will be, a service that adapts to the needs of young people we seek to serve. With our current vehicle, in the current circumstances, it would not be safe for us to go out on a Friday night.
We are seeking to get a van that we will convert to suit our needs. This will be a multi-purpose vehicle. With fewer team members we will be able to open up the back doors and serve our famous hot chocolate, have drug/alcohol awareness activities and advertise the services we have on offer. Then when we have a larger team we will open up the side doors which will enable young people to come on board, sit, chat, play a game and all the normal activities we have on our current vehicle. We will also have an awning with tables and chairs outside.
This will enable us to be out more often (different nights of the week as well as after school), visit more schools regularly and access harder to reach places.
Our more detailed vision for this is avaiable on our website.
FUTUREhope is a free, confidential service working holistically with young people aged 11-19 across Hertford and Ware.
Our primary goal is to empower young people to have hope for their future and reach their full potential through our four key areas of work.
Outreach: Our mobile youth centre and purposeful detached work. Aiming to meet young people where they are at.
Education: Working with schools (assemblies and tutor sessions) and through delivery of a range of small group work activities.
Support: Provision of one-to-one work (long term relationships) through mentoring and counselling; and by providing support to parents.
Developing: ‘our own’ through building up our volunteers, ensuring they are equipped and supported in their work and ‘others’ through supporting like-minded agencies who want to develop similar services.
