Get more involved

Want to get more involved in Headstart Kernow?

Here are a few things you can do:

 At secondary school?

Then get involved in HSK at your school.

Headstart are working with every secondary school; every special school and The Wave Multi Academy Trust. We’ve given them some funding to help them support emotional wellbeing and mental health for students.

We want all students to get know about what the school is doing already and get involved in deciding what they should be doing next…

We’ve also got fundingjust for students to spend on their own ideas

Tell us which school you’re at and we’ll let you know who to speak to in school about getting more involved.
