Funding has been awarded to CHEXS from The Warburtons Foundation to provide tailored support to youth and families

Local community-based charity, CHEXS, is set to receive a £20,000 grant from The Warburtons Foundation to support families and young children with tackling personal growth and family relationships in and around the Cheshunt, Waltham Cross and Enfield area.

Founded in 2011 and located in Waltham Cross, CHEXS is a dedicated support service to help parents build strong relationships and trust with their child. Through the charity, young people are coached and supported with a variety of projects designed to build up problem-solving as well as other tangible skills.

To help CHEXS continue its ambition, the £20,000 will be put towards the ‘Bridging the Gap’ project, providing the resources to help young people and families develop the necessary skills to build self-esteem, meaning and purpose for the future.

CHEXS aims to raise children’s confidence and resilience when transitioning from primary to secondary school, and this is achieved by conducting a number of summer holiday activity sessions, individual and group coaching sessions as well as building on its skill development programme.

Julie Cottenden, Children and Young Peoples Support Lead at CHEXS, said: “CHEXS is so grateful for this grant as it enables us to progress with the Bridging the Gap project. We look forward to seeing how the grant will help raise the children’s confidence and make the transition from primary to secondary school smoother. Through supporting families with holiday activities and term time coaching, this will have a positive impact on a wide range of people. We couldn’t thank Warburtons enough.”

Jonathan Warburton, Chairman of Warburtons, added: “We’re proud to say that we are a family business and one, which is committed to supporting communities up and down the country. The Foundation has enabled us to reaffirm this support, offering aid through product donation, education, and financial giving. In what has been a very testing couple of years, we will continue to listen and act so that we can support families as best we can and feel privileged to be in a position where we can help such deserving causes”.
