Future Pathways

Future Pathways offers help and support to people who were abused or neglected as children while they were living in care in Scotland. We work together to help survivors access person-centred support that will help them to lead full, healthy and independent lives and find their own pathways to a positive future.

‘In care’ includes living in residential or foster care, living in a boarding school (state, private or independent), having a long-term stay in hospital or spending time in a Young Offender’s Institution.
Future Pathways was launched in September 2016. It’s 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.

Health in Mind is one of the organisations in the Alliance and we are responsible for coordinating services.
