About Brighter Futures:
Brighter Futures is a charity that supports parents, carers, children and young people in Jersey. We provide a number of free programmes and services to help support the parents and carers we meet. Parents and carers come to us for a variety of reasons and from across the social system. All have different backgrounds, experiences, family and financial situations and many suffer from poverty, isolation, physical illness and low self-esteem.
We work alongside the main carer to support child development, parent/carer-child relationships and family health and wellbeing to improve family and home environments and increase life chances and opportunities.
We offer a range of personal development, educational and second chance learning programmes, group sessions, one-to-one emotional support, information, advice and practical help in order to help parents and carers with self-esteem, confidence and communication skills.
Brighter Futures is based at The Bridge – a multi-service provision for families and young people. Clients are referred to us from various sources including schools, GPs, health visitors, social workers and CAMHS or people can self-refer. We work with other agencies and in partnership with Parenting Support Services to encourage people to make a difference to their future through the choices they make for themselves and their families
We support approximately 150 families at any one time and on average it costs approximately £3,800 for us to work with a whole family as opposed to the £70,000 it is estimated to cost the States of Jersey to look after one child within the island’s care system.
Vision, mission and values:
Why get involved? Every single penny will help to create brighter futures for families and young people in Jersey.
