Bright Futures


The Bright Futures project supports care experienced young people (aged 11+)  to access opportunities with employers across York. Bright Futures is a funded project which is run jointly with Speak Up and York Cares, a registered Charity who connect the skills and expertise of employers and their employees to community projects.


Online Resource

We have just launched the Bright Futures Padlet, an online platform which provides informative resources for young people to access as and when they need it. This will include upcoming sessions and opportunities, informative resources to help develop their skills and information from various employers across York. We would be extremely grateful if you could promote this opportunity with the young people you care for. We will continue to add to this resource throughout the project.

You can access the Bright Futures Padlet by visiting:



We hope to be able to resume face to face sessions with employers at the beginning of the year enabling young people to speak directly with employers with a mix of Behind the Scenes visits and skills workshops. 


Individual Opportunities

We welcome expressions of interests from Young People (Aged 16+) interested in an individual opportunity to find out more about a particular interest or career choice. We will do our best to match them with an opportunity to speak to someone in that area of work and where possible offer some hands on experience. We hope this will provide young people with the opportunity to ask questions to people working in their area of interest who can offer advice based on their own experience as well as provide young people with an opportunity which they can use to develop their CV.
