Building Brighter Futures

Building Brighter Futures is a programme of online social activities and workshops for 6–18-year-olds with cystic fibrosis, funded by BBC Children in Need. 

We run fun and exciting online events for children every two weeks, so they can make friends, have fun and learn new skills.  From games nights, to free online workshops, to movie nights, we have something for everyone! 

"I loved this workshop, and I can't wait for the next one... it is the best workshop I have been to!" - Young person with CF

"I really enjoyed the workshop, and I don't usually like writing! I've made new friends and it gave me something to look forward to during lockdown. Thank you!" - Young person with CF

"It was really fun and inspiring, and I really enjoyed it... thank you so much!" - Young person with CF

"My son loved it and will definitely go again! It was 'The ‘funnest thing he's ever done', he said!" - Mum with a young boy with CF
