Leisure, Culture and Life skills for Care Leavers

Leisure Offer

The leisure offer is different depending on where you live in Surrey and you age, however there are lots of free activities including gym membership and swimming available. Mole Valley, Elmbridge, Spelthorne, Woking and Waverley all have a leisure offer. Speak to your Personal Adviser (PA) and check your local borough council website to find out what is available in your area.

Celebration Fund

This scheme is funded by Members to recognise and reward care leavers for their achievements. Awards may support young people to take part in a hobby or activity, purchase equipment or training to help promote independence or achieve a goal. Find out more about the Celebration Fund.

Surrey Bike Scheme

Surrey County Council provides care leavers with a contribution towards a bike, helmet and lock. The scheme will relaunch in Spring 2022. Keep an eye out for more information!

Surrey Arts

Surrey Arts aims to increase people's interest and participation in music, singing and performing arts. There are a range of arts opportunities for care leavers to enjoy; such as music lessons and workshops. Visit the Surrey Arts webpage for more information.

Driving Lessons

The road to driving just got a little bit easier. Care leavers are supported to fund costs associated with learning to drive a car or motorbike. This scheme is available for care leavers from age 17. Speak to your PA for information on how to access this support. Read more about financial support for learning to drive.
