FutureYou is a safe social networking platform which delivers information, advice, guidance and wellbeing support to young people aged 14 to 25 who are not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET), but want to improve their prospects of getting back into work or learning.
Young people who are NEET, or who are at risk of becoming so, can access to a supportive network of trained mentors who have been in similar circumstances and are able to share their experiences.
This service is underpinned by qualified counsellors and advisors who are on hand to provide more structured support to those who need it most.
Users can also access a Virtual Library of resources and practical materials, and a mobile version of the site has recently been launched.
Ultimately the aim of Future You is to increase the number of young people in education, training and employment in the UK.
