Future Bright - Worried about your work and pay?

Is your family worried about the cost of living? Future Bright could improve your career prospects


The cost of having children can be expensive, and with the addition of rising living costs, no wonder families are feeling the pinch.


If you are a working parent, you could be entitled to Future Bright’s free career coaching to help you take control of your future and make positive progress towards new opportunities and get better pay to support your family.


In the UK, 1 in 6 jobs pay below the real Living Wage, and with inflation being the highest in over three decades, many of us are starting to consider our options to help improve our situation.


Future Bright can offer you a dedicated career progression coach for 3-6 months working with you to:


·Create a career action plan
·Explore career opportunities
·Develop employability skills
·Build confidence and motivation


The team can also direct you to other support services, including money, benefits, counselling, and self-employed business support.


To be eligible for Future Bright you need to live in the West of England (Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol and South Gloucestershire).


Participants must be aged 18 or over, in paid work (including zero hours and self-employed) and receiving eligible benefits OR earning below the Real Living Wage (below £9.90 an hour).


If you are unsure if you meet the criteria, contact the team to find out more and discover other support services which may be more suitable for you.
