The PSHE Association
The PSHE Association (formally the PSHE Subject Association) was set up in 2006 with government funding to help support PSHE practitioners across all phases to raise the quality of PSHE teaching and raise its status in the curriculum.
We are a membership organisation as well a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity, governed by a board of trustees.
Membership subscriptions are used to provide a range of advice, information and resources including CPD events that will be of most benefit to members in delivering high quality PSHE education.
We work closely with our members to develop effective practice and resources. We represent member views to government and other bodies to influence policy for PSHE education.
The growth and success of the PSHE Association is dependent on the involvement of our members.
We welcome feedback and involvement of practitioners at all levels.

Governance of the PSHE Association
The Association operates with a small team of renumerated staff, assisted by an Advisory Council elected by the membership reporting to the Board of Trustees.
The PSHE Association's membership is made up of:
PSHE education practitioners and teaching professionals from all phases and sectors. We also have members who are PSHE education consultants, Local Authority advisers, school nurses and associated organisations.
Strength in numbers is important; a large and growing membership helps us to develop and present a strategic vision for PSHE education, representing the views of the professional community to national policy makers together with government agencies and partners.
