Surrey Care Trust and Exclusions
One of the great charities in Surrey. I was invited to draw the raffle at their Christmas Celebration. After we eliminated multiple winners and Trustee winners (!) I said a few words about how the charity is addressing the issues of school exclusions which is my HS preoccupation. Their interventions are broad ranging from the Stanwell Children's' Centre to their Steps programme helping young people who are out off education (which I have witnessed first hand) to their mentoring work with children who are in school. All good stuff making a real difference. Well done to the boss Elaine Tisdell and the new chairman Denis O'Connor.
