Community & Schools Engagement

NEW Educational Service for Schools, Colleges and Youth Organisations

This is an exciting new service that will support and enrich children’s learning through a range of assemblies, lesson talks and schools’ projects.  These can be tailored to different ages and to individual curriculum requirements, such as:

Beth and Bear
 - Values – caring and compassion, love and kindness;                          empathy;
 - PSHE – living in the wider world: support in the local                         community; health and wellbeing;
 - Citizenship – recognising the role of voluntary                                    organisations in the community; charities  
 - Health and Social Care
Philosophy and Ethics

We aim to deepen children’s understanding of the work we do at Garden House Hospice Care, the wider Hospice movement and promote awareness of palliative care services in the community.

“It’s been fabulous to watch the children building relationships with the patients and adults they don’t know over the last three weeks. They have learnt so much, in particular about science, the immune system, medical equipment and germs. They have also talked about worries and loss. The programme has really helped to take the stigma away from the Hospice being a sad place – it is one that can be fun and full of laughter.”
