Bright Futures Charity in South Shields

The Bright Futures Charity located in the South Shields area of the United Kingdom is dedicated towards supporting young mothers and giving them the chance to do not put their work at risk when they have children. With more and more zero-hour contracts being issued and with job security at a greater risk for mothers going on maternity leave, it is becoming harder and harder for young mothers from less advantaged backgrounds to be able to juggle the work and family balance in equable measure. Through the support of property association Isos however, the Bright Futures charity organization has been financially aided with a total of £14,700 towards it to helping it to conduct its services to young mothers in the South Shields and surrounding area. The aim of the organization is to help women aged under 25 to get reintegrated into the workforce and to help them to settle themselves back into the challenging work environment. With such services as CV writing workshops as well as helping them with childcare options that are open to them through online internet services as well as other things such as interview guidelines, the “Young Mums and Mums to be Group” dedicates itself every day for up to 10 weeks by helping mothers of a younger demographic to cope with the many 21st Century challenges that working mothers still face on a daily basis in the United Kingdom. Indeed, the opportunities that the program offers are so broad and wide that they even enable young mums to bring their children with them to the various activity sessions that are on, showing that Bright Futures cares about reducing the stress levels of young mothers in the local area. Such initiatives as these also help to build confidence in young mothers who might want to consider other options in their lives: one young woman said that the program had given her the confidence to think about enrolling in a degree at the Open University. This is a wonderful testament to the hard work of Bright Futures in tackling issues that women face in this country.
