Side by side life mentoring for social inclusion, friendships and supported decision making
Our practical approach to mentoring is focused on the development of social skills, community inclusion, decision making and building relationships and friendships. A trained and carefully matched mentor walks alongside a participant encouraging and supporting community inclusion, friendships, and the development of social and other skills dependent on personal goals and needs.
Over time trusted life mentors help increase an individual’s confidence, independence, and self-sufficiency across a range of life activities helping facilitate a good life.
Before we knew about Future Living we were anxious about Shelly’s future. We are very grateful and relieved and grateful to find such a wonderful organisation that really will provide for her when we can’t.
I can’t thank you enough for your guidance so far. I must confess you have well and truly turned this (NDIS) sceptic around.
My husband and I have donated to Future Living since 2012. We want to ensure the organisation continues to create a secure future for people with intellectual disability, recognising their individuality and striving to meet their needs.
The Safe & Secure program combines practical guidance and expert information in one place that helps families navigate complex issues.
I really love working with Future Living. It is great to work with such a dedicated team who genuinely care about their clients. Even though my work does not put me in direct contact with clients, the team always makes me feel like the work I do is helping them to provide a better level of much-needed support in the disability community. It is very rewarding for me.
