Young people benefit to tune of more than £100,000

Young people in Runnymede will benefit to the tune of more than £100,000 after Surrey County Council unlocked funds from a trust.

The authority has awarded £71,000 for projects in the area to The Community Foundation for Surrey and the charity will top it up to £101,0000.

Surrey County Council Cabinet Member for Community Safety Kay Hammond said: “This is fantastic news for youngsters in Runnymede. It’s essential we do all we can to help young people get the best possible start in life, whether it’s providing cash for local schemes, giving them a leg up in their careers through apprenticeships or helping those classed as NEET get the basic skills they need.”

Surrey has unveiled plans to create 500 apprenticeships next year and has opened skills centres to help NEETs.
