What do we stand for?

Bright Futures is a black-owned, female led organisation. We are committed to inclusive practice and have worked with some of the most vulnerable children, young people and adults. We strongly believe in watering our own grass, and as a community interest company, we reinvest any profits we make straight back into the community.

Who are we?

Bright Futures aims to build a stronger Nottingham by supporting individuals to develop the skills and knowledge to gain employment, support their family, and care for their wellbeing. We do this through the provision of training and education, the creation of resources, and the co-creation of spaces that empower and uplift individuals to become stronger together.

We're not just about profit.

As a community interest company, we are primarily a charitable function, who are allowed to create and design resources, or provide services in order to generate money which we then invest back into our charitable work. 

We know representation matters

The institutions around us often fail to ensure all children are equally represented. While these children often thrive despite a lack of inclusion, Bright Futures’ resources are designed to ensure all children see themselves in all possibilities and all parents are able to support their children fully. We therefore offer our quick guides in five of Nottingham’s most common languages (English, Polish, Urdu, Arabic, Bengali).

We're not just about academic achievement

While the primary aim of Boost is to ensure the children in Nottingham are achieving the best they can in school, we also want to make learning a habit for children and parents alike. That’s why we provide quick guides, each month, that explain to parents what activities children are doing at this point, and how they can discuss their children’s work with them in positive ways.
