Schools – Chess Homeless


CHESS is always looking to make new connections in our local community. This is because we believe that building relationships is an important way to raise awareness of homelessness, as well as giving people a fantastic chance to get involved in fun fundraising activities.

We enjoy visiting schools, colleges and universities to talk about homelessness and how we support vulnerable individuals and can prepare a presentation based on your requirements.  We also offer a series of assemblies and resources to cover RE & Citizenship national curriculum objectives and guidelines for teaching spiritual, moral, social and cultural development as outlined in the Essex agreed syllabus.

In the current climate we understand that schools are not able to host external visitors for the purposes of Assemblies and presentations. We are working to develop a virtual presentation containing everything you need to deliver a fun and informative CHESS assembly on homelessness. This will be available to download on the website very soon.

If you are interested in having a member of the CHESS team come and visit your school in 2021, then please email us or telephone 01245 281104.
