Bright Futures UK supports children and young people aged 5 to 24, who have been forced to take time out of education due to serious illness.


Through tutoring, mentoring and workshops, we provide programmes that help young people reach their true potential, making sure that illness doesn't define them.

Bright Futures UK meet the needs of an often-overlooked target group. They are flexible, creative and always responsive when it comes to working with young people who are currently, or have previously been, on roll at our school. This has proven particularly invaluable in both extending our curriculum and outreach. We are really looking forward to developing our relationship with the team further and seeing how this young charity grows and develops in the next couple of years. We hope to be a key partner in their journey.
