BrightPaths have been providing our Outreach mentors since the start of the academic year, and we have found their work and support for the pupils to be priceless. The team are very easy to work with and highly professional in their manner with staff – especially with the Heads of Year who have appreciated their input and expertise with certain pupils.

The continuity of the support from BrightPaths with the school and its pupils is vital to our student wellbeing. Thank you for all your hard work.

Together, let’s empower children to reach their full potential

The invaluable support from funders like Central Bedfordshire Council, Hertfordshire Community Foundation, BLCF – Luton Youth Fund, and others enables us to create a lasting impact on children’s emotional well-being.

Funding is an ongoing need, and individuals, foundations, and businesses can support our mission in various ways. Everyone can contribute to creating a brighter future for our children using any of the alternatives highlighted below.

Using PayPal, you can make a one-off payment or choose to make regular payments.

£5 allows us to provide take-home resources for a child from a disadvantaged background, and £15 would allow a young person to join a Bright Paths Workshop to build resilience, learn strategies to regulate their emotions and give them a brighter tomorrow… today.
