We truly appreciate the support of our amazing sponsors.
Future Directions CIC is a values based organisation. We are a not for profit social care provider. We work with individuals, families, commissioners and advocates to design/deliver the best support possible to achieve happy and meaningful lives.
We support people who have varying support needs e.g. people with mental health, learning disabilities etc. This support is based on what the individual needs and wants. For some people it will be a few hours a week into their own homes. For others it will be 24/7 support in the community.”

Care Housing Association provide accessible, high quality, supported living homes for people requiring support within the community, and have been doing so since our inception in 2003. We work with local authorities and care provider partners to provide collaborative housing solutions to people in need. We don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach and focus on finding ways to deliver desirable housing that gives individuals a real choice about where and how they live.
We provide housing across the North West, Yorkshire and into the Midlands, ranging from single person highly specialised bungalows to shared housing and ‘own front door’ apartments, and don’t believe there is one solution or model to deliver supported housing.
We build the service around the individual/group to cater to their specific needs and wishes. We also appreciate the pressures being faced by our partners in social care and are keen to offer flexible and sustainable housing solutions that don’t compromise on quality.

NHS England leads the National Health Service (NHS) in England. We set the priorities and direction of the NHS and encourage and inform the national debate to improve health and care.
We want everyone to have greater control of their health and their wellbeing, and to be supported to live longer, healthier lives by high quality health and care services that are compassionate, inclusive and constantly-improving.
L’Arche believes that people with learning disabilities have much to teach us and contribute to the world. Over the last fifty years, we have learnt the best way to enable this is by creating Communities with a culture of shared lives between people with and without learning disabilities, from which we can work together to build a more human society.
In L’Arche we celebrate people with learning disabilities and build circles of support around them. We go beyond basic needs to attend to people’s emotional and spiritual lives. It is this focus – on building relationships and a sense of belonging, on supporting each member of the Community with and without learning disabilities to reflect on what they have learnt and to share that reflection – that makes us different from other service providers.
L’Arche Communities hold in balance these four elements; service, community, spirituality & outreach. Experience has shown that each element has an important role to play and needs to be present, not only for a Community to be healthy, but in order to make us better at the other three.
KeyRing supports people with learning disabilities to live independently in their own homes and to be active citizens in their local area by focusing on the assets of the people we support and other people in the communities in which they live. This is true of every place that we work in or community of interest we support.
We work together to find ways to activate those resources, capabilities and social capital to improve outcomes and wellbeing of our Members.
KeyRing is all about listening to and working alongside people in their local communities so the people we support gain greater independence, improve their wellbeing and are part of a network of contacts and friends.
We believe mutual support, volunteering and working are great vehicles for getting to know people and developing skills and confidence, all of which contribute to stronger and more resilient communities.
