Information for Schools

Ross Cowie and David PalmerEducation is a central part of the work of St Giles Hospice, which not only provides continuing skills training for its own hospice staff, but wishes to promote a greater understanding of the work of the hospice within the local community.

To encourage and promote awareness of St Giles and the wider hospice movement, Ian Leech, our Community Engagement Officer, fosters links with schools and colleges within the hospice’s catchment area.

Lessons, assemblies, resources and activities are tailored to different age groups and to support the curriculum, helping young people to deepen their understanding of social, religious and supportive care issues. Where appropriate, visits can be arranged for staff and pupils to come to the hospice.

We are also able to offer support to schools that have children and young people experiencing bereavement.
