About Future Pathways

Future Pathways was launched in September 2016 to offer support to people who were abused or neglected as children while they were living in care in Scotland. It is supported by funding from the Scottish Government and is managed by a group of organisations that make up the Future Pathways Alliance to oversee the fund and make sure it is reaching as many survivors as possible.

Our Vision

Survivors lead full, healthy and independent lives.

Our Purpose

Co-ordinate access to and the delivery of resources, integrated care
and support so that Survivors can achieve their own goals.

Our People

The work of Future Pathways is overseen by the Alliance Leadership Team (ALT), who meet on a monthly basis. The team is made up of representatives from each of the Alliance partner organisations, as well as two survivors of in-care abuse.

Our day-to-day work is managed by the Alliance Management Team (AMT), who meet on a fortnightly basis and also represent the partner organisations.

We also have a dedicated staff team based across Scotland. These include our communications hub team, who are the first point of contact for people who want to register with us, via our Freephone number, e-mail or website.

Our team of fully trained and trauma-informed Support Coordinators will then meet with survivors via their preferred method of contact (e.g. phone, email, face to face).

Together they will identify the Survivor’s needs, what is important to them, and the specific outcomes they wish to achieve and agree a tailored package of support.
