Making Sense of Future Options

These are some of the ways we can help you 'make sense' of future options and decision-making ...


What ideas do you have for the future? It doesn't matter if you have loads, or none ... our advisers will help you find out all the possibilities


> If there are things that may make your future plans more difficult to achieve (such as a health condition, disability or learning difficulty) we will help you find the support you need


> We help you learn how to make your own choices. This may seem difficult, and worries some people, but you can ask for help... and it gets easier the more you practice


> We can help you to find out about the things that will be different when you are an adult ... and to learn the skills that you need to make your own choices



> Change can be difficult! Our Cosmic Futures Team can help you to build confidence to take your next steps. We can talk to your family and other support workers too if you want us to.
