CHEXS are #hereforyou
We’re looking forward to another school year of working with children, young people, parents and carers.
Some things may have changed due to COVID but CHEXS are still doing all we can to support families and the local Community.  

CHEXS Self Esteem Project begins in our schools

At the beginning of September our Self Esteem team began a series of 14 Aspirational Talks at our schools.

It was lovely to see so many welcoming staff and pupils again all smiling in their school community.
When speaking to pupils about comfort zones and how they felt CHEXS could help them, a reply was
“I’m so excited that I will be with CHEXS this year. They will be able to help me with my anxiety by taking me out of my comfort zone”.

We are now working with many children and young people delivering our first Enrichment projects of the school yeart with pupils in schools.

The pupils have been fantastic and really listened well to the instructions given and have been able to work alongside each other in their bubbles to create amazing willow butterflies for their schools community to enjoy
We have been discussing some goals they would like to achieve this year and how they were going to achieve them.

CHEXS Afterschool Leadership Project

CHEXS is now running an Afterschool Leadership Programme that uses experiential learning techniques to help children build skills and resilience, and empower their decision making. 
Their whole family will be invited to take part in craft sessions and community days so they can spend fun times together making memories.

CHEXS School Holiday Activities
CHEXS  has secured funding from Children in Need for a new project to provide holiday support to the children we are currently supporting through the school term on the CHEXS Self Esteem Project. We will be providing additional support during the school holidays for the mentored children to give them the opportunity to continue their CHEXS journey so that they have fun whilst reinforcing their learning and confidence to step outside of their comfort zone
