Future Intentions Yorkshire is a successful women’s project, a distinct service in the women’s support services space.

Our History

Our journey started back in 2016 with one women’s dream to help other women live their best authentic and fulfilling life, set up with a little over £1,000 from the government, Enterprise Allowance Scheme founded a sole trader business ‘Future Intentions’ since taking another leap of faith in 2021, founding ‘Future Intentions Yorkshire’ along with two other inspiring women entrepreneurs to be led by a all women’s director board. We are a small voluntary sector organisation with a social mission successfully led by women for women and supported by a small team of dedicated and very talented volunteers.

We do not define ourselves as just a 'women's group'. "WE are a women's movement encompassing so many inspiring and courageous women who have made decisions with INTENT, not something that comes without its challenges, these women are living life as 'warriors' amongst us" Liz, Founder, social entrepreneur and community champion.

Over many years I have opened many doors to opportunities to support myself in my journey back to the workplace as a women returner, not without challenges I looked inside myself to explore why I didn’t feel truly fulfilled in any career choices, suddenly a ‘light bulb’ moment came about and changed the trajectory of my path forever…..have a listen to my raw and unedited account of my experiences as a women struggling with work, mental health and family life.

“I am excited to be sharing with you a heartfelt true account of my reality as a busy mum, juggling the challenges and demands to being a working mum, student and everything above and beyond, overwhelm and trying to to turn the tide on burnout” Liz, Founder of Future Intentions Yorkshire
