Equal Futures

Equal Futures promotes social inclusion for people with a learning disability and autism in Scotland.

Equal Futures was set up in 2002 by a group of parents who have a family member with disabilities. The aim was to help families plan for the future to ensure that their relative lives a good life. Since then, Equal Futures has been on a journey to support people and their families through Circles of support, befriending and social events.

We provide support for people aged 16 and over and work across 10 local authority areas: Glasgow, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scottish Borders, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire, Perthshire, East Ayrshire, North Ayrshire, South Ayrshire.

Information for volunteers

We have three volunteer opportunities: Volunteer Befriender, Volunteer Professional and Community Event Volunteer. Each role plays a different part in helping to reduce social isolation for the people we support and to build their social circle.
