What is Face Forward?

Who we are 

Face Forward is delivered by Ansbury Guidance in partnership with multiple organisations across Dorset. It is funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery through the National Lottery Community Fund.

This partnership allows us to offer support tailored to your needs and personal preferences, because if we cannot help you directly, we have the right connections to refer you to other local organisations.

Our vision

A county where young people from all backgrounds are given the opportunity to make positive choices to live out their fullest potential.

Our mission 

We are passionate about supporting young people who are not in education, employment or training to overcome their individual barriers, that prevent them from making positive changes in their lives.

Our values 


Each participant is treated as an individual and a development plan is created specifically, for them, according to their needs.


We uphold equality and diversity and accept every individual from all backgrounds and walks of life.


Working within rural parts of Dorset, transportation can often be an issue for young people, we ensure our services are accessible to all locations across Dorset.


We employ members of staff who have been through similar experiences and can understand and relate to a young person’s situation.


Please Note - Face Forward is now closed to new referrals.
