Future Bright are still available to support participants and are still taking new referrals to offer advice and guidance. Currently we are not able to meet participants face to face but we are able to offer our service via telephone, email and video contact to continue with service delivery.
Our project is designed to help people who are currently in paid work. This employment can be full time, part time, zero hours and self-employment. Any employee who is furloughed who is still employed and claiming one of the above benefits will be eligible for the project. In order to be eligible for Future Bright you need to be 19+ in paid employment and claiming one of the eligible benefits:

Employment Support Allowance
The project is tailored to the individual and we set goals and actions to help them progress towards their chosen career aspirations, or improve their current employment through advice and training working with them on a 1:1 basis. If you have anyone that you think could benefit from support from the Future Bright project please complete our online referral form (with their permission) or forward our details for them to self-refer.
