Matrix Trust is a local Christian Charity which provides support and opportunities for vulnerable young people across Guildford Borough. The opportunities, such as face-to-face social connections, offered by the Matrix Trust enable young people to believe in themselves and give them a sense of belonging, thus providing a platform for change so they are not left socially excluded.
The Trust works with schools as an integral part of the pastoral system, providing professional Mental Health First Aid trained Youth Workers to help support the 1 in 10 young people who are experiencing a mental health issue at any one time, as well as those made vulnerable by life or circumstance.
Young people are also supported in their own communities through Youth Hubs and targeted projects. Innovative activities, safe spaces, a wide range of opportunities and positive role models help the young people to make the most of their lives.
The High Sheriff observed that the Matrix staff and young people alike were delighted that the HSYA provided funds to support the great work at Bushy Hill Youth Club.
