What is it about?
If you are age 13-25, then RSBC’s Futures service is for you! We’re here to give you the help and support you need as you start to make plans for your future.
Maybe you already know what you want to do – get a paid job, become a volunteer, run your own business, take up an apprenticeship, or go into further or higher education. Or perhaps you aren’t yet sure what you’d like to do? No problem! At RSBC, our Futures service can be by your side to guide and support you as you start to make those plans.
So, whether you’re making choices about your GCSE subjects, starting to think about your next steps in education, or planning your employed or volunteer role, our Futures service can help you reach your goals.
Who is it for?
Anyone age 13-25 who’s thinking about the next steps in their life and planning their future
Family members of a young person trying to access some information or support alongside them. We understand that sometimes information about the support available for blind and partially sighted young people can be difficult to access. That’s where we come in.
How will it help me?
Through the Futures service, you can access one to one sessions with our team, get support and share ideas and experiences with other young people at workshops, get practical support with CV writing, applications and interviews, find work placements or experience, and really build your confidence to take the next steps in your future journey. We’ll make sure that we support your personal aspirations and look after your wellbeing.
RSBC’s links with partners mean you have the best possible opportunities to build your own skills, knowledge, experience and, of course, confidence.
Perhaps you’d like some support with really practical things like applying for Access to Work? Maybe you want to be more confident in your mobility, so you can better manage your route to work or college or uni? Or you might want a hand in applying for Personal Independence Payment (PIP). These areas can sometimes feel confusing and hard to find support for. We can help.
And we have a range of workshops for parents and carers who may want to find out more about how they can support their young person as they look to the future.
