New Bright Space Opens at Isleworth Crown Court
The Bright Horizons Foundation for Children officially opened a new Bright Space at Isleworth Crown Court on September 19th.
The Bright Space is located within the family waiting room used by child witnesses prior to entering court, where they can also be interviewed or review their Achieving Best Evidence interview. The renovation includes soft furnishings, baby changing facilities, and children’s toys, furniture and equipment, to provide a child-friendly and welcoming environment.
The Bright Space is the Foundation’s second in memory of Joan Elms, who worked as a Cook at Bright Horizons’ Acorns BP Nursery. Joan was often described as a mother figure, known for her baking and love of butterflies, which feature in the Bright Space.
The Foundation and its volunteers have created a homely and welcoming environment which provides these vulnerable children with the opportunity to relax and play, to help them feel comfortable.
