What is Five Rivers Futures?
Five Rivers Futures is a befriending service for young adults aged 18-25, who have left Five Rivers’ care. The service provides care leavers with support and advice for emotional, practical and financial difficulties, and volunteers will be accessible via phone, text, or email. The types of support available include:
- General Advice
- Overcoming barriers
- Friendly chats
Five Rivers have recognised the need for additional support for young people in care when they reach adulthood, and this service has been set up following consultation with Foster Carers, those with care-experience and care leavers. We want to continue to show our care for young people even once they have reached adulthood.
Please note this is not a crisis hotline. If you are in an emergency then please call 999 or Samaritans on 116 123.
