The Bright Futures Fund

The Bright Futures Fund was set up in 2008 up by a husband and wife who wish to provide help to groups helping young people to engage in positive activities. The fund is specifically targeted at young people facing difficulty or disadvantage because they are not in employment, education or training; young people who have offended or are considered to be at risk of offending; young people affected by bereavement and young carers.
