Who we are

Alternative Futures Group is one of the largest not-for-profit Health and Social Care charities in the North West and has been changing lives, creating independence and achieving great outcomes for the brilliant people we support for 30 years.

Operating as a Trading Charity, our income is solely derived from locally commissioned services which are funded either by Local Authorities, Clinical Commissioning Groups or by Individual Direct Payments.

With an annual turnover of over £60m, we employ 2,000+ staff who proudly support more than 1,000 people with a range of learning disabilities and mental health issues.

Our support provision is delivered by our amazing workforce combined with the latest digital technology. This enables us to take a personalised approach with our service tailored to meet the specific needs of each and every individual we support. We connect people to their loved ones and the communities in which they live, promoting independence, choice and opportunity.

Above all, each individual we support lives a full independent life, as they wish to live it.
