Future Bright

In these uncertain times where the Covid-19 virus is causing so much anxiety and disruption to people’s lives, especially in relation to jobs and training, the Future Bright team would like to reassure residents that the project will continue to run and offer support throughout this crisis.

Future Bright career progression coaches are able to support people who are currently in paid work but on top-up benefits, to progress their career and help remove barriers to progression.  This support can be provided remotely by telephone contact, Skype, email and text messaging.

Future Bright is open to local residents who are:-

  • Receiving any of the following in-work benefits or tax credits –Universal Credit, Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Job Seeker’s Allowance, Income Support, Employment Support Allowance, Housing Benefit, or Means-Tested Council tax Reduction

  • Help you form an Action Plan and support you through each step and
  • Signpost and advise you on training and career pathways

Plus we can offer some financial support towards training or other work related costs.
