Broxbourne Better Futures is a new project available to the residents of Broxbourne. This project is a partnership between Hertfordshire Mind Network, Broxbourne Citizen Advice and CHEXS. Broxbourne Better Futures has been developed with an aim to improve mental health within the family home and reduce poverty across family generations. Each service will provide tailored support to encompass the whole family. Hertfordshire Mind Network is a local mental health charity and will provide combined mental health and vocational support with an aim to reduce family tension in the home and increase employment, volunteering and training opportunities.
Broxbourne Citizen Advice is a free confidential service that provides independent advice and will offer support around tackling poverty by reducing debt and provide tools and techniques to help families manage their finances independently.
CHEXS provides children and young people with support outside of the school curriculum via outdoor experiences. Team building and volunteering projects incorporate the use of many natural materials and peer mentoring provides confidence and self-esteem. The aim is to increase skills and resilience for the future. Some projects culminate in a residential programme/activity days to consolidate their learning. Our work enables young people to step outside their comfort zone and be challenged in a safe, supportive learning environment.
