GASP motor project helps some of the hardest to reach young people in the community aiming to change their behaviours and attitudes, supporting them to progress through education, employment and training and preparing them in a practical way for the world of work. The aim is to allow young people to experience the values of team work, gain confidence and self-esteem and focus on their personal, social and emotional development.
GASP Motor Project runs many sessions for both boys and girls each week providing a positive and constructive opportunity to get involved with vehicles. Young people come from a variety of backgrounds, some local, some from further afield, some referred by the Police and some because they have worked with GASP at school. They all share a common interest in motor vehicles.
During the last week in office the High Sheriff visited Dunsfold Aerodrome to see two vehicles from GASP taking part in the Green Power Formula 24 event. The vehicles had been built from kits by the young people under the tutelage of the dedicated GASP staff. The High Sheriff said that, “I witnessed the testing of the cars as 15 drivers from the GASP project took their turns at the wheel. The vehicles, powered by batteries, were running well and it was a great sight to see them”.
