Young children running

About us

Our main aim is to protect and enhance the lives of the children of Reading. We help families find long-term solutions to ensure children lead happy, healthy and successful lives.

Brighter Futures for Children is a not-for-profit company, owned by, but independent of, Reading Borough Council. We took over the responsibility for the delivery of children’s services in Reading in December 2018.

We work closely with partners in the local community and key organisations including the council, police, public health and voluntary groups.

We are responsible for the delivery of children’s social care, early help & prevention, education services (including SEND). This also includes fostering and adoption, the Youth Offending Service and traded services with schools.
