Why join us?

This really is a great time to join us in Reading. We have been working with Reading Borough Council and partners to create an independent local authority-owned company, Brighter Futures for Children, to support our unrelenting focus on high quality outcomes for children.

Brighter Futures for Children is formed by staff who have local knowledge and an excellent understanding of the needs of the Borough. The Company is enabled and owned by the Council, but controlled and run by its own directors with a dedicated leadership team and operational independence.

We are currently driving through a progressive and ambitious Improvement Plan which includes stabilising our workforce for the future. Stabilising our workforce will support us in delivering high quality Children’s Social Care, Early Help and Educational Services across the Borough.

Our ambition is to be a national leader in social work practice and training and to put safeguarding and maximising children’s life chances at the heart of everything we do.
