Who we are

Brightly is a small, independent Jersey charity that provides support to children and young people aged from newborn to 25 years; we also support the. Our remit is to those who are under the care of Children’s Services (currently circa 1,200 children and young people). These children and young people are either: -

  • living in residential care, foster care, or with extended family
  • have been in care (care-experienced)
  • acknowledged as being on the edge of care, being on the Child Protection Register, being identified as a Child in Need, or the child of care experienced parent/s.
  • on an Early Help Plan

Among other things, we help with education and training, health, and well-being, and moving towards independence. Our support includes anything from nursery placements for the children of care leavers, food vouchers in times of crisis, memberships for Jersey Zoo, and other attractions that allow quality family time. For care leavers, we will also help fund, over and above statutory allowances by the Government of Jersey, the cost of college courses, work clothes, tools, and medical fees. We also fund the cost of items for when they move into their first home, which is a very exciting, but big and expensive step.

All money raised by Brightly either stays in Jersey for the benefit of island residents or can be applied in cases where local children and young people (covered by our remit) are cared for off-island.

How and what we support

Typically, it is health and social care professionals, or others who know the individual’s situation well, who apply to us for financial help to support those they are working with.

We consider all requests on an individual basis. We pride ourselves on being agile and making swift decisions, we seek to minimise bureaucracy.

We do not support applications for goods or services that are included in grants or benefits from the Government of Jersey.
