Announcing the Step Forward service with the YMCA East Surrey.

If you’re struggling with your mental health or finding it hard to cope, you’re not alone.

Support and activities for young people aged 17-24 with mental health and emotional wellbeing needs.

This service is FREE for attendees and there is no upper or lower limit as to how many sessions you can attend.

We will offer an initial meeting for us to get to know you and give you an opportunity to meet us and ask any questions you may have.

Our Sessions:

Mondays - 18:00 to 20:00 - Phoenix Youth Centre in Tadworth 

Tuesdays - 14:00 to 16:00 - Christ Central in Redhill

Wednesdays - 16:00 to 18:00 - Leatherhead Community Cafe

Fridays - 15:30 - 17:30 - Focus Youth Centre in Epsom

The sessions are flexible, attendees can attend as many or as little sessions as they like, and do not need to stay for the entire session.

We welcome anyone within this demographic and are happy for you to bring a significant other to your first session to make you feel more comfortable.

Step Forward offers one-to-one support and social group activities planned around you.

This could include anything from sport, fitness, creative projects, cooking, gardening, games and we are open to any other suggestions you may have.

There will always be a focus on emotional wellbeing support and advice.

We aim to reduce stigma around mental health, improve social networks, build a community, combat loneliness and isolation, improve wellbeing and help young people to feel happier, more confidence and more resilient.

YMCA can also provide access to volunteering roles and scope for employment opportunities both through Step Forward and through the wider YMCA East Surrey organisation.

We can accept referrals from parents/guardians, teachers/support staff, social workers or self-referrals directly from the young person themselves.

Sessions will run from:

Phoenix Youth Centre, Preston Manor Road, Epsom, Tadworth KT20 5LG,

Christ Central, 3 London Road, Redhill, RH1 1LY,

Leatherhead Community Hub, Leatherhead, KT22 7PX,
