What is Brighter Futures?
Brighter Futures (charity number 320) is a targeted support service.
We support children, young people and families with parenting and life challenges. We generally work with the main carer. The aim is to enable child development and parent/carer/child wellbeing.
We offer a range of personal development, educational and second chance learning programmes. These are delivered through group sessions and individual support.
Our vision is to build a brighter future for the whole family.
