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.
Running workshops with BFUK has been a really rewarding experience, giving me the opportunity to share things that I wish I had been shown when I was young. I’d recommend this to anyone who has some time to spare and wants to give something meaningful back to those that really need it.
I’ve had a great experience with Bright Futures UK. They found an excellent tutor to help with my coursework. I’ve been away from university for two years and this helped me get through the transition easier. The session with my tutor is flexible, and I can contact my tutor and the BFUK team anytime on the Bright Futures UK platform. I would recommend it to other young people who have to take some time out of school due to health reasons.
