Introducing the My Future Care Buddy Service

Do you want to face later life with greater peace of mind, knowing that your wishes are understood and you have plans in place? Feeling confused and overwhelmed about where to start? The FREE My Future Care Buddy Service offers up to four phone or online chats with a trained Buddy who will help you work out what you need to do, and how to do it.

You’ll use the My Future Care Handbook, provided free, as a framework for the conversation. It’s packed with practical information, checklists, planning tools and sources of further guidance.

Working with a small group of  people for your first session enables you to encourage and learn from each other, and shape your personal action plan. Then set a date for another session with your Buddy so you can discuss progress and agree next steps. Before you know it you’ll have completed those tasks you may have been putting off, or just hadn’t known where to start.

Set your priorities in a supportive group session

Are you ready to start thinking about your priorities for future care and later life? Join a FREE supportive online session with a small group of people in the same situation. You’ll leave with a personal action plan and a date in the diary for a check-in call with your Buddy.

Also for community and individual support organisations, health and social care providers and social prescribers...

Would you like to refer people to our service, or offer your team the opportunity to become Buddies?

Refer the people you support to the Buddy Service

 Could the people you work with benefit from support with their later life and future care planning? Would you like to learn more about the Buddy Service so you can refer them with confidence? Join a free, online information session to find out how it works. 

Get training for your team

Would you like to offer the Buddy Service directly to the people you work with? Ask as about training opportunities for your staff or volunteers, so that they can upskill as my Future Care Buddies.

Thanks to the support of our partners we are currently able to offer the My Future Care Buddy Service FREE whether you apply yourself or are referred by another organisation.
