Bright Lives is set up as a Social Enterprise Community Interest Company (C.I.C) and operates as a "Not for Profit Business" enabling the progression of Life Skills and Social Skills. We support people from 18 years of age upwards. We believe that everyone despite their personal circumstances in the past, has the ability to progress and achieve their dreams and ambitions. Discover new skills and explore new opportunities through learning and progression. Bright Lives offers a innovative, progressive training facility providing a vocational training environment for people with Learning Difficulties, Physical Disabilities and Sensory Impairments.

We aim to provide engagement through a wide choice of enjoyable activities. These are personalised to meet the desired outcomes of the individual and available at different times of the day to meet your requirements. We will also be able to create your own individual "learning style by developing person centred training plans".

Our trained staff work with specialist tutors from local colleges to explore different methods of communication including Makaton. We practice current skills and explore new and emerging skills within the workshops.

We encourage time to relax and chat with friends as part of the structured day, as social contact is very important for forming and maintaining relationships with friends and colleagues. Bright Lives staff are trained to cater for all your personal needs. Bright Lives has its own on site Cafe where you can purchase anything from a snack to a full meal for less than £5.00. Open from 11.30 to 14.30 everyday.

We are dedicated to providing you with the best quality of care whilst maintaining the focus on supporting you to achieve your personal development goals. Bright Lives offers a caring and safe environment with a high ratio of trained, qualified and experienced staff offering a person centred service where people are motivated to progress in a structured progressive way.
