New CEO for Brighter Futures

A local charity that supports disadvantaged families and young people has appointed a new CEO.

Taking over from retiring Ruth Brunton is Fiona Brennan, who has worked with Brighter Futures since its inception in 2008, when she joined as a keyworker.

She was appointed Manager in 2010. Prior to this, Ms Brennan supported children with Special Educational Needs in primary and secondary schools.

President of Brighter Futures Wendy Hurford MBE commented: “Fiona has been a mainstay of Brighter Futures over its lifetime and is highly regarded by all who work with her both within the charity and in her wider role across the community. We are delighted that she is now leading the work we do. Brighter Futures could not be in safer hands.”

“It is a privilege to lead the Brighter Futures team and to work alongside our wonderful families as they share their journey with our charity,” she said.

“Clients come to us for a variety of reasons and from across the social spectrum. Everyone has different backgrounds, experiences, family, and financial situations. Sometimes our clients may feel socially isolated, may require support for their wellbeing and mental health, and/or help for their child to grow and thrive. We are proud to work alongside the main carer and their families to help them to manage some of their life’s challenges.”
