Forever Young People
Forever Young People offers bespoke, personalised and differentiated support
packages for young people from primary school age up to college students.
We also offer 1-2-1 classroom support and life and social skills training
out in the community.
FYP aims to engage these young people in the local community and to build their self-esteem, which will enable them to unlock their potential.
Sadly, our society seems increasingly willing to ‘disregard’ young people; all too easily excluding them from schools, closing community youth facilities and generally taking away the opportunity for young people to build their identities or have
any feelings of self-worth.
Where possible we create a safe environment in which they are encouraged and supported to build the foundation of their fundamental development and growth.
Sparking the initiative of social change, to break the barrier for young people and their community.
''We have been truly blessed to be able to find a carer as lovely, thoughtful and trustworthy as Ashley, who clearly meets all the criteria I had asked for. Ashley has two outstanding references and I would not hesitate to recommend Ashley’s services to anyone who is looking for support for their son/child as Ashley has been outstanding with our own son.
About Forever Young People
Founder Ashley Maher
During my professional career I have been fortunate enough to meet and work with many wonderful young people from various backgrounds, cultures, settings and environments from all around the world. No two days or indeed no two people are the same and doing what I do really is the most rewarding and fulfilling aspect of my life.
The inspiration for the name ‘Forever Young People’ comes from my belief that no matter how much young people grow, the root of a person will remain ‘forever young’. The enthusiasm for what they do, the desire to impress, the willingness to learn and the passion to make a difference, will always be forever young.
FYP takes a holistic approach with young people; starting where they are in terms of physical and emotional well-being, then creating a bespoke and realistically achievable plan for their developmental progress. At the heart of everything we do is an unerring desire to make a positive difference to their lives, allowing young people to create better opportunities for themselves by making better choices & decisions in life. To know that I have made an impact on someone’s life is what drives me.
Experience has taught us that education is crucial and if used correctly it can literally change the world. Education comes in many forms and as we grow up and go through school, it’s easy to think that this is the only type of education we will receive and the only education from which we can learn. Whether or not a young person is actually attending school, we believe every day can still be viewed as a ‘school day’ and every day they can learn something new.
''Ashley has honestly brought out the best in our son, encouraging Daniel to try new activities and helping teach our son how to prepare for day trips and everyday life. Ashley is very good at understanding when Daniel may need more time to process instruction or information and is always able to rephrase what has been said to ensure that Daniel can process all the information.''
We place a great deal of emphasis on the importance of ‘Emotional Intelligence’.
Although largely overlooked by schools, FYP believes that this is very important in shaping how successful someone can be in life and is crucial in helping to mould their personality and behaviour.
We believe Emotional Intelligence is at the core of making someone a better person and helping them to play their part in making the world a better place.
What we offer
''As well as being a fantastic carer Ashley has always been very aware of Daniels allergies and has taken extreme caution to ensure that Daniels needs are met and that he is able to prompt Daniel in reminding him of any allergies when they are on day trips and outings. This has been very important as when out on day trips or outings it is not always clear that certain ingredients are used when preparing foods etc''.
