Who are we?
We are an organisation that supports professionals working in hospital education. This could be within a hospital school, within a tier 4 Child and Adolescent Mental Health Unit, within an outreach service or home tuition service. Any educationalist who works with children and young people who can’t attend school full time because of their medical/mental health difficulties really! NAHE has been formed by joining the National Association of Hospital and Home Teaching and the National Association of Hospital School Leaders. Both associations had always worked closely together, and in discussion with the Department for Education, who felt that the voice of the sector would be stronger if we were together, we decided that we would form one organisation that would ‘unify our voices’.
