He has been a tenant, a service user of our Floating Support Service, a member of our Flexible Future Forum, a volunteer at our ArtWork Cafe and has delivered training on Person-Centred Planning and his own Ladder Support Plan to Future staff, Board Members, service users and, on one notable occasion, to a groups of carers and a psychiatrist from the Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust.

Michael has a strong commitment to social inclusion and is an energetic volunteer with Future and elsewhere in order to further this aim.

We will let Michael tell you more about his time with Future in his own words. You can also watch Michael’s story on Training and his work with Future.

Service User/Tenant Involvement Co-ordinator. When she first joined Future in 2003, she was recovering from a major episode of mental ill health and found the opportunities and confidence given to her by Future HSC  to be a vital part of her recovery.

We will let Bernie tell you more about her time with Future HSC in her own words.




Paul has been involved with Future HSC as a service user, volunteer and paid employee and we have greatly appreciated his creative and technology skills. Pauls’ unique contribution, however, has been through his music. An accomplished guitarist and singer, Paul set up a Future band which gave service users opportunities to learn to play the guitar, sing and perform in public.
