Surrey Care Trust’s STEPS to 16 programme targets some of the hardest to reach young people in Surrey. They provide young people who may have struggled at mainstream school with a second chance at education by offering small classes, a high level of individual attention and a flexible alternative approach to learning. The social and personal development of the young people is nurtured by building confidence and self-esteem enabling them to deal with issues that may be a barrier in their lives. The programme is delivered with the benefit of a high tutor to student ratio, tailored to one to one support when required and by the provision of mentors and counsellors.

The HSYA has supported a crime prevention ‘Drugs Awareness’ module which aims to help the young people to better understand the consequences of drugs and substance misuse and the importance of good decision making as well as online safety and sexual exploitation awareness.
