Thanks to funding from #iwill 2018 (c/o Surrey Community Foundation) we are offering free youth social action training for practitioners working in Woking & Spelthorne & Runnymede.

Often the support work takes place in 1-1 and group sessions, listening to and caring for students over several months or even years.

Active Surrey, working in partnership with Surrey Youth Focus, are launching a series of free workshops for clubs about engaging young people in sport.
Based on the findings of research carried out by Surrey Youth Focus, the workshop will explore which young people are underrepresented in sport, what they are looking for, and the small changes clubs could introduce to make a difference to a young person near them, while at the same time reaching new participants.
If any clubs are interested in attending, please could they email: firstname.lastname@example.org
