About Tailored Futures:
Tailored Futures CIC was established in 2014 as a social enterprise that saw a gap in the engagement between statutory organisations and people on probation. This very issue pivoted the organisation towards creating a personalised service that provides people on probation with the needed tools and skills to help them combat daily challenges.
Tailored Futures also noticed that rubric used to engage with people on probation was not producing the needed results as little time was given to build relationships. For this reason, people on probation often disengage from said organisations. Tailored Futures, having witnessed this - made a mission to correct this.
Tailored Futures’ approach towards this issue included a shift from the usual mandatory engagement, to voluntary engagement. Engagement with people on probation allowed them to identify the root of issues and create long term solutions. With this approach, Tailored Futures has been able to work with over 700 people on probation with different complexities through a specialised education, training and employment service that prioritises people’s needs.
