Future is a charity whose mission is to help young people succeed.
Significant barriers exist for many young people in our society. Poverty, failing schools, gang culture, poor parenting and a lack of appropriate role models are just a few. However, we believe that with the right support, encouragement and opportunities, there are no limits to what young people can achieve. There are two main arms to the work that we do to help young people overcome the difficulties they face and to achieve to the maximum of their ability: academy sponsorship and venture philanthropy.
Future sponsors Future Academies, a small group of South Westminster schools. The group consists of one secondary school - Pimlico Academy, rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted at its last inspection - and three primary academies - Millbank Academy, Pimlico Primary and Churchill Gardens Primary Academy. Both Millbank Academy and Pimlico Primary are rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted.
Future Academies schools all work together and share best practice. Most recently all three primary schools have worked together to embed specialist subject teaching across Key Stage Two.
We offer support, both financial and advisory, to a small number of carefully selected charities. Generally support is given to small-medium sized charities with a replicable model which are at an early stage of their development. This allows us to have a greater impact on their work.
