Who are Brighter Futures?

Brighter Futures has been changing the lives of looked after children for the better since 2007.

Brighter Futures, is a small agency with a positive family feel, with the added benefit of being part of the National Fostering Group.

This means that we can offer our foster carers the specialist local training and support, at the same time as having a nationally recognised fostering community who share our dedication to making sure children in our care remain at the heart of everything we do.

Wraparound fostering support for you and the child in your care

From the moment you enquire about becoming a foster carer with Brighter Futures through to a child arriving on your doorstep and beyond, we are with you every step of the way to answer any questions you have about foster care.

We are acutely aware that improving the lives of hundreds of children and young people doesn’t just happen overnight. Making sure children in our care can achieve all that they want out of life starts with making sure that our foster carers have everything they need day and night.

We know what counts when it comes to supporting you and your family during your fostering adventure.

This is why you will have access to a 24/7 staffed phone line, a programme of online training, peer support and advice, support groups and events in your local area, as well as the chance to improve your skills and expand your knowledge on a range of foster care topics from our experienced training leaders.
