We recently took a survey of over 1000 young people in Surrey Heath to identify the key issues we will focus on throughout our projects in 2018. Here are the top five issues we identified:
- Curriculum to prepare us for life
- Cost of living
- Safety at night
We will now be able to target these issues over the next year to improve Surrey Heath for young people.
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.
