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.

Aspired Futures

Some of the children and young people have been engaging in cooking session via video conference with staff members.

With the support of Chris and his team at @tesco_officialuk Ansdell Road Express store we have gathered required ingredients and delivered them (ensuring a contactless delivery) to the children for each session. During these sessions the children are joining us with cooking different meals at the same time via video conference calls from their own homes so they can share their new found skills and meals with their families.

The children are enjoying these cooking sessions while they learn new skills, staying safe in the kitchen and enjoying the sit down meal they would get in normal sessions at Aspired Futures.

The children and young people of Aspired Futures will be thrilled to come back to The Lodge to find their new music room!

With the help of our long time supporter and friend, Stuart Barcock, who supplied the posters and assisting with the creation of this new room the children will have a full musical experipence while they learn to play instruments, listen to music or just a space for them to relieve stress and have fun.

With thanks to all who donated records for this melodious and distinct music room.

As always, we have had a great floor cleaning experience from our friend, volunteer and contractor Ian Squire at Lytham St Annes Carpet Cleaning.

The carpets are looking lovely and leaves a fresh clean feeling around The Lodge in additional to ensuring the priority of the health and hygiene for the children and young people once sessions return to their ''home-from-home''.

Everyone at Aspired Futures sends very best wishes to all our friends, volunteers, supporters and funders. We hope everyone stays homes, stays healthy and stays happy. Thank you to everyone who has been in touch with us to offer support. Your continuing commitment is sincerely appreciated.

Our normal social group activities have been suspended to keep everyone safe. Immediately after we took the difficult decision that collecting children and bringing them to the Lodge was not appropriate, we created and delivered bespoke activity packs to each of our families. We then upped our technology skills in order to keep in touch with each of our supported children and young people. The technology nettle has been well and truly grasped by each team members to set up individual remote interactive sessions instead of social interaction at the Lodge.

We have a closed Facebook page to exchange comms with the children and across the team. In addition, each child or young person has a designated key worker who maintains weekly contact to deliver personalised virtual support. The key workers can be contacted outside of the scheduled time slots if the children, young people or their families need to talk.

We are able to continue team meetings and share information by embracing the world of the virtual office while each of us works safely at home.

Please do look at our Facebook page for regular updates and to see the achievements of our children and young people. It is our aim that each supported child or young person will continue to achieve their personal goals and practice new skills, growing in confidence and self-esteem as they do so. We are able to support learning and share fun games and activities but also want to emphasise the importance of staying emotionally and physically healthy through exercise and eating well.

It is a trying time for everyone, adjusting to a totally different way of life is challenging for us all. Our team is committed to reaching out, supporting everyone in the Aspired Futures family to care for each other.

Stay home, stay well, stay happy
