Citizens Advice Bureau
The CAB are a massively important organisation, and one which could prove invaluable to attendees. Offering free impartial advice on a whole range of issues, the CAB helped with over 7.1 million cases in the UK last year. At the Futures Fest they’ll be available to talk through any troubles attendees might be experiencing. They’ll also be on the lookout for volunteers, so if you think you can help and need a CV boost make sure you have a chat with them.

They’ll be continuing their support over both days at the event where they’ll be doing their best to help young people back into work. They’ll also be on hand to let people know about the various different ways they can support you; whether it’s a little CV tinkering you need or some help starting up your own business.
