Hear from some of our individual members about why they support the Futures Fund.
“It is great to know I am directly helping young women who haven't had the advantages in starting out in life that I was lucky enough to have. The proven effectiveness and efficiency of the services Young Women’s Trust provides gives me huge confidence that my contribution will directly help transform young women's lives, giving a lasting legacy not only for them but their families, community - and wider society as a whole. I've been so inspired when hearing the young women's stories, how they've struggled with the barriers they face but still take all the support and opportunities they can to overcome their difficult situations. It is fantastic to see the confidence they quickly gain allowing them to start taking control of their lives.” Samantha, Futures Fund member
"I decided to join the Future’s Fund due to my own experiences of dealing with the insecurities in the workplace. I am very fortunate to have a support network around me that will always drive me forward in those moments, but imagine you are in a position with little or no support, vulnerable and isolated from society, that lack of self-belief can be totally debilitating. Knowing that my donation could give two young women a year the support and guidance they need to get themselves employment and move forward with their lives is amazing. Through the Futures Fund I have also had the opportunity to meet some of the young women who have received support which has been so inspirational and validates why being a part of the Futures Fund is so important to me." Amelia, Futures Fund member
“The young women I have met through the charity are some of the most inspiring women I know. The difference between me and the young women is that, by chance and good fortune, I have had more opportunities in life. Being part of the Futures Fund gives me a sense of solidarity with those women and my contribution is my way of helping to give them a new start. It’s not a traditional way of giving but a sense of shared purpose – to provide a better future for women” Hannah, Futures Fund member.
