Bright Futures is the UK’s only charity supporting children and young people back into education after long term medical conditions - both mental health and physical illnesses.
Our goal is to make sure every child and young person has equal opportunities and access to education regardless of their illness.
We provide tutoring, befriending, mentoring and workshops to children and young people aged 5 to 24 who have an ongoing mental health or physical illness. Everything programme we offer is fun, free and completely tailor made for the young person’s needs - whether it’s becoming more confident, improving grades, creating better support networks or what’s out there after serious illness. From diagnosis to classroom, Bright Futures UK provides support to young people going through illness every step of the way.
Josh & Nathalie co-founded Bright Futures UK after their own experiences of serious illness during education. Both Josh & Nathalie had cancer at different stages in their lives, and between them, they’ve been on the receiving end of treatments, appointments and rehabilitation support for a combined total of 20 years.
Bright Futures UK currently works with a number of the largest NHS trusts in the UK including; Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), University College London Hospital (UCLH), The Royal Free Trust, St Thomas, The Royal Marsden, and many schools. We provide services on a national scale with both online and in-person services availble.
