We help young people to make confident and informed
decisions about the future through online mentoring
We believe that talent, not background,
should be the key to young people's success
Brightside is at the heart of the National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP), a government-funded programme which brings together regional partnerships of universities, colleges, local authorities, LEPs, employers and third sector organisations with the aim of rapidly increasing the number of young people from underrepresented groups who go into higher education. We are proud to be working with a number of NCOP consortia across the country, matching over 3,000 young people with mentors so far. Our unique online mentoring platform is perfectly suited to overcoming many of the challenges young people face in certain areas, providing an impactful, flexible and cost-effective means of connecting students with information, advice and personal guidance regardless of where they live.
