Rewards

This project offers rewards in return for your donation.

£5 or more

Cake and a hug

This will enable a Transition worker to meet a young adult carer for an encouraging and supportive catch up over coffee and a cake, outside and socially distanced as required. This is really important for their well being and an opportunity for them to safely offload.

£10 or more

Local decorated pebble

Bright Futures will decorate a Devon beach pebble for you and email you a photo of your pebble which will be left in the local area to promote the work that Bright Futures does. This will enable more young adult carers to come to us for support and help young people identify themselves as a young adult carer. Donations will all be listed on our Facebook page and photographs will also displayed in our TTVS window.

£20 or more

£20 Reward

Allows us to buy train tickets for for young adult carers to have a day out to relax and have fun away from their caring responsibilities.

£100 or more

Training session

This will enable our transitions workers to run a bespoke training session for our young adults carers. Examples of training we have already done include skin care sessions, upcycling and a healthy eating day with lots of yummy recipes and fun exercises. Training can help further their careers, providing them with opportunities to realise their amazing potential.
