Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE)

The Hope Service runs a rolling programme of PSHCE themes throughout the year which are adapted to support the specific needs of the young people who attend. Aspects of healthy lifestyles are delivered as part of the activity programme at Hope, through cooking, sports-based and outdoor activities. Self development topics, such as Anger Management, Self Esteem, E Safety and Smoking Awareness are delivered by specialist staff within Hope or visiting professionals. Cultural aspects of the programme are delivered both within the day programme and during targeted sessions.

Aspects of the PSHCE curriculum can be developed and integrated into the ASDAN Bronze Award and the ASDAN Personal and Social Development Award, which are both offered at Hope.

Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE)

Two staff have been trained to deliver a CSE programme for young people who have been identified as a CSE risk, or those who would benefit from specific Sex and Relationships education. The programme is based upon training from the Sex Education Forum in conjunction with the National Children’s Bureau.
