Brighter Futures Outer East connects young people who have experienced out-of-home care with community members who support their goals.

We work with a diverse group of community partners across Knox, Maroondah and Yarra Ranges council areas. Key partners include Anchor Inc., CREATE Foundation and the Brotherhood of St Laurence, working together with over 30 local businesses and groups.

Brighter Futures has shown our approach works for young people in addition to enriching local communities through greater social inclusion, inter-generational contact and participation. We’re creating a new blueprint for supporting young people leaving out-of-home care.

We are funded by the Victorian Government and philanthropic supporters.
