The community that cares

Every Child Our Future is a Guernsey registered charity with two main objectives:

To actively promote a culture in which the community collectively takes responsibility for and participates in the secure development and education of its children from 0-11 years old.

To improve literacy and numeracy standards for Guernsey children.

These two aims are achieved through the setup of Bright Beginnings, a specialist nursery, pre-school and Children’s Centre and through our partnership with the States Education Department in working with all local primary schools.

Reading Volunteers

However the success of any initiatives will be underpinned by a bank of volunteers who will pledge to act as ‘mentors’ for an hour at a time. Individuals from local, often high profile, businesses taking time to spend with children in school send them an important message –

You are important; you are our island’s future.

Every Child Our Future is truly grateful for all the help received from businesses and individuals alike. New volunteers are always welcome – the more positive mentors we can supply, the more successful any extra teaching is likely to be.

We cannot have too many volunteers as every extra one spreads the workload and reinforces the important message that our children matter.

“Its been really good to see how the children are progressing with their reading development”
