Empowering Future is a UK-registered CIO Charity
Charity number: 1182139
Our co-workers and animals need your help. Any amount you can spare will help us continue to support the vulnerable and isolated within our community.
Our mission is to use horticulture and animal therapy to create positive meaningful changes to the lives of people living in the local community who are living with disabilities, who are vulnerable, isolated or disadvantaged.
We are passionate about relieving social exclusion, increasing wellbeing and reducing the disparity between those with and without disabilities in employment.
We provide education in growing, gardening, cooking and employability skills. We will do this through training opportunities for our users and within the local community. We work closely and seek advice from local horticulturalists, herbalists and crafters who are highly experienced in working with individuals with learning disabilities and sensory and communication impairments.
Empowering Futures promotes equality and diversity for the public benefit by offering an inclusive, safe environment whereby everyone can develop and learn new skills at their own pace and feel fully supported. We actively encourage new ideas and working methods and strongly believe that diversity is strength.
In summary, through our own personal behaviour and example, our ethos is to create an environment where everybody feels secure, valued and respected. Each person's individuality and diversity are celebrated. We will value and celebrate the contributions and commitment made by all community members, including our users, volunteers and wider community members.
Our commitment is to regularly review and evaluate the work of Empowering Futures to maintain the high standards we expect of ourselves.
