Creating brighter futures for families in Jersey.
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. People come to us for a variety of reasons and from across the social system, with different backgrounds, experiences, family and financial situations.
YouMatter works with young people to build their self-esteem and help them to develop an understanding of their true value and worth. We run workshops with thousands of young people in Jersey every year to inspire them to make healthy and positive choices about their lives and relationships.
We provide high-quality, interactive and engaging workshops for young people in schools, youth clubs and other community settings. We also provide sessions for parents and training for professionals.
