Changing Futures

About us

Changing Futures is part of Brave Futures, a children’s charity working throughout Norfolk, providing specialist support for people up to the age of 18 who might require extra support and improve their insight in their emotional responses. Our aim is to provide a safe space for children and young people, where they can make sense of the confusion they feel. We seek to support them in gaining the skills and tools they need to manage their emotions, understand their behaviours and help them move forwards.
