The Nottingham Education and Health Support (NHES) main aims are to see young people and their families overcoming severe educational, health, language and economic barriers to achieve their true potential. NHES believe that no young person should be disadvantaged by their background and provide a wide range of activities to target those most in need across Nottingham, providing academic support, health advice and accessible activities to help develop skills.
