HOPE update

Ofsted (Education) visited HOPE Epsom for a monitoring visit in February 2011 and concluded that this part of the service’s capacity to improve has improved. This is good news for us, as it means we hopefully have a couple of years until the next Ofsted Inspection.  Thank you to Judy Sherington, HOPE’s Head of Education, for the work she has put in to the education provision across HOPE, and to all the staff for their support in achieving this standard.


Young people in HOPE have become valued contributors to ‘Our Voice’ magazine, which is produced with the support and guidance from CYA’s staff and young people.


HOPE is developing excellent links with the Youth Development Service, who have already delivered two training days to HOPE staff on sex and relationships, and drugs. The training has equipped staff with current and relevant information about these areas, so that effective work can be undertaken with young people to support positive choices.  Part of the relationship with YDS includes accessing community based youth work facilities, so that young people can access appropriate support near their homes when they move on from HOPE. 


In April, HOPE welcomed the Chairman of the Trust, Richard Greenhalgh, accompanied by Associate Director for CYPS, Mandy Dunn, to meet HOPE staff and young people, and join us for lunch.  They joined with the young people in undertaking a group painting, where thankfully aprons were provided!


Finally, HOPE is planning to hold a Conference in June 2012, to spread the word about the benefits of multi-agency work with young people with complex needs.  We will keep you updated as plans progress!
