Preferred Futures

 Preferred Futures, putting families back in the driving seat

 Preferred Futures is a dynamic, creative new family service based at Barnsley Business Innovation Centre. Our dedicated, professional team have over 100 years combined experience in children and family services.

Our service specialises in training and facilitating Family Group Conferencing (FGC) and can meet a wide range of need. We deliver a person centred approach and will work with any individual and their extended family support network.

All families face difficulties at times and sometimes have problems that they just can’t seem to resolve. FGC is a way of bringing together extended families including friends, neighbours, significant others and any professional agencies involved. The purpose of which is to explore potential solutions and agree safe plans for the future.

FGC is used successfully both nationally and internationally particularly with children and young people. However, a family plan might be required to support a vulnerable adult or elderly relative (Please see examples on FGC page).

Family Group Conferencing can help wherever there is a plan or decision to be made.
