  • Mission statement

    Future Skills Training (FST) invests time in at risk, vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people aged 8-18, supporting them through transitional periods in their life. We help them develop confidence, social skills and practical skills enabling them to succeed in life both practically through education and employment, and emotionally through positive relationships and mental well-being.

    All our work is underpinned by our core values of caring for our young people, empowering them and giving them hope, aiding them in building a more fulfilling future, finding their place in society and realising their potential. We actively build relationships where appropriate with individual’s families and other professionals involved, creating an effective network around the young people.
