About us

Hello Future is a partnership of universities, colleges and employers who want to increase the number of young people in Cumbria progressing to higher education.

We are the Cumbrian consortium of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme, a Higher Education Funding Council for England(HEFCE)-funded programme which runs until December 2020. The Programme includes 29 consortia across England. More information on the National Collaborative Outreach Programme can be found at http://www.hefce.ac.uk/sas/ncop/

Young people we work with live in areas of Cumbria where the levels of young people progressing to higher education are both much lower than expected, based on GCSE results, and low overall. Below you can view the areas of Cumbria we focus on:


Those we work with are in years 9-13 and on course to obtain five GCSEs at grade A*-C or 4-9 including Maths and English.

Through intensive, sustained and progressive support we help young people in Cumbria to consider their options for future education, plan how to achieve their goals, and realise their potential.

Our work is impartial and includes free activities and information, advice and guidance to support young people in Cumbria to make informed choices.
