Your generosity will support us to change lives
Poverty is known to have a negative impact on educational attainment and across Surrey young people living in poverty do worse than their counterparts in other areas of the UK. It is believed that their situation is felt more intensely because of the wealth they see around them; the wealthiest areas are next to some of the most deprived estates in the county. Although Eikon works with a high number of young people receiving pupil premium funding, and free school meals, we know that wealth does not immunise young people from problems either. Family breakdown, hazardous drinking amongst professional adults, high levels of debt can all have a negative impact on young people from any background.
Eikon’s range of programmes helps young people develop their social and emotional capabilities, including self-reliance, independence, emotional control, resilience, confidence and self-esteem, together with a wide range of practical life and employability skills.
It helped me become the person I am today. My Youth Specialist helped me deal with issues that could have affected my whole life. I was worried about the consequences of my past actions and they helped me to think logically, practically and to deal with the situations rather than worry about them.
With the money you donate, there is so much more we could do. Here are a few examples of how your money could make a difference:
- £5 could pay towards food for 2 young people suffereing from neglect
- £15 a month could pay towards one to one support for a young person going through family trauma
- £50 could pay for a Young Carer to attend an Eikon activity day and have some respite from their caring duties;
- £100 could enable a young person at-risk of offending to attend a Crime Diversion Course and turn their life around.
