The Bright World Head Office team (above) were delighted that so many of our partner schools, host families, drivers and friends came along to help us to celebrate the opening of our new office premises at Forge House in Hurstpierpoint on Friday, 16th March.
Guests arrived at 1pm and were treated to a champagne reception with Chinese canapes and a chocolate fountain. While the music played, Heads and Registrars of our some of our closest partner boarding schools representatives had the chance to meet the Bright World team, our Local Coordinators, host families and drivers who all make up the important elements of our agency and guardianship service.

"Bright World is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment."
The number of UK Boarding Schools and important Industry Associations attending our Company Conference last week was testament to how highly thought of Bright World Guardianships is. We have had some wonderful feedback at how impressed our guests were with the amount we invest in Child Protection and Safeguarding. It is so important to bring the whole company together once each year to share experiences and obtain important Child Protection Training. I believe it really sets Bright World apart and enables us to strive to be the best in UK guardianship' Lana Foster, Bright World Managing Director
The Bright World Company Conference 2018 was a resounding success. So many of our close partner schools and agents took the time to join us. We all came away feeling very positive about the Guardianship industry and the work that schools and Bright World do together to keep children safe.
