We are a CHILDREN’S CHARITY. We CHANGE LIVES.

Based in Blackpool we provide long-term, life-changing therapeutic services for the most ‘hard to reach’ children and young people.

Our work would not be possible without the support of organisations such as The Kensington Foundation who provide us with rent free accommodation and local businesses who donate. We also have many individuals making donations and volunteering their time.

Congraulations to Sue Flowers at Green Close Studios for being shortlisted for the Curious Minds Lockdown Inclusion category for the North West Cultural Education Awards 2020.

During Lockdown Sue Flowers joined Aspired Futures in remote group art sessions alongside UCLAN Prof. Dr Deborah Crook. The children enjoyed these sessions and the distraction from the pandemic and uncertainty surrounding them.
