Could you change a child or young person’s life?

Could you provide a listening ear to a child or young person whilst working in an outside environment?

At CHEXS our support workers do just that!

CHEXS provides a safe place where a child or young person can flourish and build on their life skills whilst navigating the emotional roller coaster of growing up!  CHEXS works alongside the child/young person and their school as well as their families to make sure they acheive their best outcomes.  Children who are shy find ways that they can lead, children who display anger, find new postive ways to be calm and some just want to be a part of a team and not feel alone.

CHEXS provides programmes that support school aged children and young people to overcome barriers and find their own gift… everyone has one!  Being part of the CHEXS team you will be supported to develop your own skills whilst working within a friendly inclusive team. Our team work hard, but go home at the end of the day with a feeling of satisfaction that they have made a difference.

What we aim to achieve together?
