What can Face Forward do for you?
Face Forward is delivered by Ansbury Guidance in partnership with multiple organisations across Dorset. This innovative co-produced model allows us to offer support and guidance tailored to your needs and personal preferences. This means that if we cannot help you directly, we have the right connections to refer you to other local organisations.
Unlike other projects, we don’t follow a set programme. Joining Face Forward is totally voluntary, you can advance at your own pace, and you can leave whenever you wish. We want to help you through your personal journey, but the choice to go on with it will be always yours.
How does it work?
When you join Face Forward you’ll meet with your Adviser and together you’ll create and agree on an Action Plan to take you to where you want to be in life. Together we will identify your needs and priorities. Every member has different goals, so your plan might involve entering work, education or training, taking up a new hobby or activity to develop life skills, or attending specialist support to tackle complex issues, such as mental health or substance misuse. Whatever your objectives are, we’ll help you to get there.
By the end of the programme, you will have developed the skills and self-confidence to overcome your barriers and keep going on your own. As we’ve mentioned, Face Forward isn't a set programme, so if you need more support, we’ll be here to help you.
