Our Core Moral Purpose

CHEXS is a ‘Charitable Incorporated Organisation’ whose primary aim and passion is to advance education for the public benefit through the provision of educational support for both children and adults alike; this includes an increasingly wide range of extra-curricular activities, extended services and family support for the benefit of all members of our local and extended community.

Every child matters…every family matters!!


To advance education for the public benefit by the provision of educational services, extra-curricular activities, extended services for the benefit of the families and communities of Cheshunt and the surrounding area and the provision of family support.


The charity is focused on uniting different sectors, including public, private & VCS’s, to share and support our objective, working hard to develop innovative approaches inclusive of universal & targeted support through an array of services and activities. ChExs would like to thank the following for their particular contributions in supporting CHEXS:

B3 Living, Aylett’s Nursery, Sainsbury’s Waltham Point Dept, CVS for Broxbourne & East Herts, Broxbourne Council, Broxbourne Borough Councillors: Charles Walker MP, Cllr Paul Mason, Cllr Dave Hewitt, Cllr Dee Hart, Cllr Rob Gordon, Howard Wilson Accountants, NHS Hertfordshire, HAFLS, Lee Valley Park Authority, Herts Aid, Youth Connexions & HRC.

What we do & our values

CHEXS’ main priority is to enable children, young people, their families and the local community to improve their wellbeing through creating opportunities to raise aspirations strongly linked with realistic and achievable expectations.  CHEXS plays a significant role in the lives of many young people and their families, often independently of statutory bodies, and is in a particularly unique position to engage with those who are reluctant to involve statutory agencies or are unsure of who to turn to. This approach supports and develops life skills for their personal and social development for their future life paths.

These steps ensure CHEXS’ is well placed though remains independent, with a strong collaborative and open track record, to be proactive and promote innovative ideas.  These actions support and prevent family’s situations from escalating and requiring greater and more specific services, all of which supports the Localism Act!

News Update

Broxbourne Youth Charity of the Year 2016

CHEXS was awarded Broxbourne Youth Charity of the Year 2016 on Friday evening. It was an amazing shock to win especially with the other charities that were shortlisted.

The award is in recognition on how CHEXS engages and supports children and young people in numerous enrichment projects. The enrichments projects enable all involved to develop vital life skills and gives them the opportunity and experience to enrich not only their own lives but also the local community they live/study in.

It was also a fantastic evening for Richard from Haileybury Turnford who was shortlisted for Young Volunteer of the year. This was for the numerous times he has volunteered for CHEXS and the extra miles he always goes to help and support his peers, younger children and community members alike! Richard came runner up from a short list of 10 other young people which was a fantastic achievement and we are all very proud of him.
