What is SCYP?
SCYP is a charity that started in 1947 which aimed to assist young, disadvantaged and disabled children through the Surrey area. They are the largest non-uniformed youth work deliverer that is voluntary in Surrey and they have a vision to engage with any young people who are vulnerable, disadvantaged or at risk of being excluded socially.
Why is SCYP needed?
SCYP’s youth clubs and support help to engage positively in areas where there is a great need for positive youth culture. They also run a range of activities on a regular basis for young people to take part in, including many areas of sports development, specialist activities, challenges and creative learning opportunities.
