Success Stories

With one-to-one sessions tailored to the young person’s individual needs, our approach promotes long-term positive behaviour change.

As a result of our mentorship and support, the young people we work with typically experience a steady increase in resilience, self-esteem, emotional literacy, better communication, social skills and stronger friendships. Many also experience decreased worries, stress and anxiety.

Below are a selection of feedback from some of the over 500 lives we have touched.

Before BrightPaths, I had lots of feelings I didn’t talk about, and I got angry a lot. But now, I know it’s okay to talk about my feelings and that it’s normal. My mentor helped me feel better and taught me how to talk about my feelings. I especially liked using bubbles to learn to breathe to calm myself down.

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.

I like it when Tasha comes to work with me. It makes me feel good and fun, and I like to talk about my feelings and why I get angry a lot.

I notice a real change in J on Tuesdays after they have seen you, and their key worker always says that they come out of the sessions smiling, and that is just priceless to hear at the moment.

My daughter met Simone for her first mentoring session and it was great. My daughter felt listened to and encouraged and hopefully, this will continue. She is looking forward to the next session.

BrightPaths have been absolutely amazing. I was struggling to get support for my son.. but we were allocated Simone who has been absolutely fantastic. From the first session where my son wouldn’t engage much at all to now where he is getting the benefit of fun and interactive sessions which he happily engages in, there has been huge progress. Simone has been absolutely brilliant. She has been so patient with him and has really tried to get to know him on a deeper, more personal level to base the sessions off his interests. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough!!
