About Working Futures

Working Futures is a Liverpool City Region programme, which offers a personalised, flexible package of support to help young people, aged 16 to 29 who are currently not in employment, education or training (NEET), to move towards a better future. The support available can be either short, medium or long term. Everyone enrolling on to the programme is assessed to identify the help that they require. Once the programme is complete participants are supported to move on to employment, self-employment, apprenticeships, Further Education, training or volunteering
