Better Tomorrow

Helping people facing social isolation and injury through recreation

Our charity BPN Foundation believes in rehabilitating people suffering social isolation and injury through recreation. Under this programme we run a number of innovative projects including the Butterfly Effect and our Community Garden.

The Burns Better Tomorrow Programme last year helped 130 young people gain employability and life skills via a Burns’ volunteer-led programme which provided them with work experience at the company’s factory, head office, market gardens, shops and warehouse.

Under the Better Tomorrow Programme our charity runs a number of innovative schemes and projects including the Butterfly Effect Project and The Community Garden Project. Our Community Garden project brings together four local schools in order to create themed raised beds.

Both mainstream pupils and pupils with learning difficulties collaborate on fun and unique designs that put their creative skills to the test while also empowering them and improving wellbeing. This opportunity encourages children to build their confidence and socialise with pupils from different schools while giving back to the community.

Some of the things the Butterfly Effect project beneficiaries said about the project:

“I felt like I was rotting away at home but here I feel useful like I have a purpose.”

“My worth went down from 100% to zero and this has helped to lift it back up.”

“Other people don’t understand what it’s like.  Here everyone gets it.”

“I enjoyed working outside, it’s like a little EDEN!”

“I’ve been able to move away from avoiding situations to developing more confidence in social situations.”

“Making things that will be useful lifts your spirits”
