Cream Tea with Councillors
We recently held a special cream tea event to inform all the Surrey County Councillors and Surrey Heath Borough Councillors what the Surrey Heath Youth Council does and how we represent all young people in Surrey Heath. This will help us to improve our links and enable us to better spread our message and take action on the issues we found in our survey.
The Surrey Heath Youth Council recently ran their first Anti-Stigma Conference at Collingwood College. The event aimed to educate and inform young people in Surrey Heath about the seriousness of mental health illnesses and how to help those struggling with them.
The Surrey Heath Youth Council has previously run two Anti-Bullying Training Days to train Anti-Bullying Ambassadors for schools in Surrey. The days aimed to reduce bullying through a peer-led scheme and give students the skills required to go back to their schools and develop Anti-Bullying initiatives.
Preparing for Working Life Project
The top issue we identified from our recent survey was that young people want a curriculum to prepare them for life.
