Objectives

.We are a specialist charity provider of high quality health, well-being and drug prevention education working with primary schools across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire. Our aim is to equip young people with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make choices that will help them to live healthier, happier lives. We are a delivery partner of Coram Life Education, the UK’s leading health and drug education organisation. Bringing health and well-being learning to life, we’ve been delivering health and drug education programmes in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire for over 28 years, and to over 300 schools. Our regularly updated programmes have been created by child development experts to be stimuli-rich and interactive, and through puppetry, role play, and film clips we capture children’s imaginations and develop critical thinking and risk management skills.

Activities

Our programmes enable pupils to feel empowered, identify and articulate their needs & feelings and make healthy choices. Participating schools benefit from our award-winning SCARF, PSHE curriculum, giving children enrichment experiences and enhancing emotional health. East Midlands Service users for  2023 -  39,000

School feedback from a teacher “the workshops encompass a vast range of subject areas, life skills and information. We believe this will have a great impact on the children's learning, relationships and interactions”

Another aspect of our work is to provide parent sessions, in demand at schools we attend. We developed these on Zoom during lockdown and ran day & evening sessions. We found increased attendance of dads, working parents and parents working from home. These sessions continue to be held in schools and remotely. Programmes include Coping with Anxiety & Feel Good Families and also offer basic literacy, numeracy and IT skills. We encourage parents who engage, to move on to further education and or new work opportunities.
