The east to west Trust

Type: Agency
Since 1997 east to west have been bringing hope to young lives all across Surrey and Berkshire. Right now we’re supporting 875 local children, young people and their families struggling with difficult and damaging issues, from self-harming and bullying to broken family relationships, abuse and even homelessness.

Most of our work takes place in local schools, where our Relational Support Workers are journeying alongside young people to understand their situations, grow their confidence and help them thrive. Often our work takes place in 1-1 and group sessions, listening to and caring for students over several months or even years. But it can also involve practical help like going with children to doctor’s appointments or food banks, connecting them with a social worker or specialist counsellor, mending holes in their school uniform, or just making sure they get breakfast.

Whatever kind of help is required, we’ll support them for as long as they need it, because we believe that every vulnerable child and young person in our area should be able to experience wholeness and hope.

At east to west we’re committed to being present in the messy realities of young people’s day-to-day lives, offering hands-on whole-hearted help for as long as they need it. And we do that because as a Christian organisation we believe that Jesus cares deeply for each vulnerable child and young person we see and wants us to be a practical demonstration of that love.
