Few will know of this incredible work.

In the A and E departments at the Royal Surrey County Hospital and St Peter’s Hospital Chertsey the small Christian team of Emerge advocacy is providing on the spot support for young people struggling with self harm or suicidal feelings. The youth workers continue to provide ongoing critical support following the initial work in A and E. Sadly the need for this work has been growing and Emerge are now a highly valued in the Accident and Emergency wards. The dedication and commitment as the volunteers and youth workers spend their nights in A and E speaks for itself.See www.emergeadvocacy.com

I was so pleased to be able to give to Joy and Bethany a cheque and certificate from The High sheriff youth awards to acknowledge the work they do in making Surrey Communities stronger and safer.
