Future Ready (Freddie)

Future Ready is a fully funded offer connecting Year 10-13 with a blend of wellbeing support and opportunities to consider their future post 16/18 plans.
· Are you in school Year 10-13 or do you have students in this age range?
· We are looking to support young people with levels of attendance below the expected average typical for them or their school
· We want to hear from young people electively educated at home or whose parents/carers are considering this
· Do you have young people identified as leaving school and at risk of becoming NEET when they leave school?

Virtual DofE

Do you know a 13-24 year old who wants to do something fun and meaningful? They can sign-up to our virtual Duke of Edinburgh's Award with all sessions being carried out online!

Participants will start their physical, skill and volunteering sections immediately. All sections can be safely carried out by the individual at home. With the practical expedition section being completed at a later date.

This is open to 13+ for the bronze award, 14+ for the silver award and 16+ for the gold award.
