The Brightspace Foundation, previously known as the Bulmer Foundation, is an independent sustainable development charity established in 2001 by the Bulmer family and HP Bulmer Ltd as part of their commitment to sustainable development in Herefordshire. In 2003, Bulmers was acquired by Scottish and Newcastle plc. who have continued to provide financial sponsorship and given increased support and encouragement to the Foundation.
The Foundation’s mission is to enable and demonstrate sustainable development in conjunction with a fundamental shift in our human understanding and values founded on the belief that current economic and social problems cannot be resolved by the attitudes and beliefs that created them.
The Foundation aims to make a difference initially in its own back yard by acting locally and having a clear set of priorities. Since the Foundation’s core belief is that all things are connected it integrates its own work with the work of others. On this basis the Foundation is delighted to have formed so many positive partnerships with other organisations . . . locally, regionally and nationally which are all working to the same aims.
Any special conditions?
The Foundation’s aim is to raise awareness of the need for change and to help deliver that change. This is being done through the promotion and demonstration of more sustainable ways of meeting human needs. Whilst the demonstration projects are located primarily in Herefordshire their impact will reach beyond the county border.
