Youth Conference: Curriculum for Life
Our recent consultation of Surrey Heath young people found that they wanted better preparation for life after school. We have created this event to inform young people in Surrey Heath about the different paths they can take, such as studying at university and apprenticeships; how to be more employable; and how to look after your wellbeing at the same time.
The event is designed to be accessible for all young people interested in the topic.
The event will run from 1:30pm - 4:30pm on 22nd January.

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.
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.
