One Future was founded in February 2018 as a boutique consultancy and assessment service. The founders saw that whilst there were services already working in early intervention, child protection and out of home care, there was a need for a service that could respond quickly to requests for services, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. One Future is able to support agencies that may not have the capacity to undertake assessments or respond to crisis situations for children in out of home care and child protection. One Future has, in it’s short time of being operational, undertaken many relative kinship carer assessments and supported hundreds of children and young people to remain with family or kin rather than being placed in foster care.
In January One Future delivered its first Pregnancy Family conference after becoming an approved Pregnancy Family Conferencing Facilitator.
September 2019 One Future released OFTEN (One Future Telehealth Education Network) which is a secure video conferencing solution that allows children, young people, families and carers to get support from the comfort of their own home using 4G technology.
One Future approved as a provider through the Casework Support Scheme (CSS) which allows us to offer supervised contact, supervised transport, mentoring and daytime respite for children and young people in out of home care.
Approved provider of Family Group Conferencing. FGC promotes respectful and strength-based engagement in planning to meet what is in the best interests of the child or young person.
