Your Fund Surrey
Surrey County Council have recently launched the ‘Your Fund’ scheme which will allocate £100million over the next five years to the most deserving community projects in Surrey.
The vulnerable young people we work with at GASP Motor Project face even greater challenges because of the pandemic. The further decline of their socio-economic situations, education and mental health means they need our help and support more than ever. We want to give them the best possible opportunities and care over the coming years to help them get back on track. To achieve this, we would like to refurbish one of our buildings to give them a fantastic IT Suite where they can expand their education using the technology that supports engineering. This will also be a Wellness room where we can offer one-to-one counselling in partnership with the amazing Matrix Trust. We are lucky enough to have a funding grant for the IT equipment and the mental health support for the young people, but we urgently need the additional space.

In order to qualify for the next stage, we need to demonstrate there is sufficient support for the project from the local community. Then we can present our business case at the second stage and hopefully get a funding grant for our IT Suite and Wellness Room.
We can’t do this without
