The Surrey Virtual School is delighted that Surrey Arts provide a range of services for looked after children and care leavers, including those who are not in education, employment or training (NEET) or youth offending. Surrey Arts believe that music can be an incredible tool for boosting self-confidence and the ability to process emotions.
Their services can encourage integration and social cohesion while providing a safe and creative environment to have fun and meet new friends. All this can reduce isolation and anxiety, improve mental health and emotional well-being, and improve numeracy and literacy learning skills.
