The Idea Works are delighted to announce the winner of the TIW20 awards as Brighter Futures.
Our four shortlisted charities for the TIW20 Awards:
Aspire Charitable Trust, Brighter Futures, Jersey Employment Trust, and Jersey Recovery College.
Aspire Charitable Trust aims to provide quality education, training, and employment opportunities for people with learning disabilities. Their vision is of an inclusive workforce, where people with learning disabilities can maximise their potential, be recognised for their skills, and be regarded positively and with respect.
Brighter Futures helps struggling families through difficult and challenging times by providing these families with the tools they need to change and safe-guard their future. The charity’s hope is to create a legacy of brighter futures for all the children on our beautiful island, no matter their background.
Jersey Employment Trust helps people with disabilities and long-term health conditions to secure work, through providing training and support. The charity also supports and guides employers in this quest. Through three social enterprises, Jersey Employment Trust provides a supportive and nurturing training environment along with employment opportunities for those who cannot compete within the open labour market.
Jersey Recovery College aims to provide hope, opportunity, and empowerment to people affected by mental health difficulties through free education and training opportunities. With their specially tailored courses, the charity wishes to enhance people’s knowledge and understanding of mental health conditions, recovery, wellbeing, and life skills, as well as help influence positive changes in mental health services.
