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.

During a session last week the children were decorating pebbles. The children had free range to create any art of their choosing with some very colourful results.

After the session the children took their pebbles home to decorate their own gardens.

Even though our volunteers are currently unable to attend sessions due to government guidelines they are still joining the children and encouraging their creative minds via video link through the sessions. This brings great joy to the children seeing a friendly and familar face.

If you would like to join our team of valued volunteers in supporting local children and young people please contact the Aspired Futures office on 01253 769755 or email at office@aspired-futures.com

On the 25th July, 2 children supported by Aspired Futures were honored to be the ones to cut the ribbon for the reopening of Sandcastle Waterpark Blackpool and they both thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Thank you to all the staff for making it such an enjoyable experience.

Gardening can be very calming so when we have bulbs to plant the children help to plant them.

Although some of the children were a little reluctant at first to get their hands dirty they all enjoyed helping. The children will help to care for these bulbs and over time they will get to see what patience and care can create.

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
