A programme of the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children®
Bright Spaces are warm, safe, enriching play environments for vulnerable children affected by abuse, domestic violence, parental imprisonment and ill-health. Complex trauma experienced in childhood can have a lifelong damaging impact on children’s physical, emotional, and intellectual development. Our 65 Bright Spaces in the UK benefit thousands of children, providing them with a safe place to learn, have fun, build positive relationships and heal from trauma. Our experienced volunteers create Bright Spaces which respond to the needs of our partners and the children and families we collectively support.
