The Lifetrain Trust for over 67 years has worked with vulnerable young people in Surrey supporting them to achieve their potential through non-formal education.  These young people have been given unique opportunities through training, education and life experiences, to encourage and develop their teamwork, leadership and social skills.

As a local charity delivering services to young people across Surrey at a time of unprecedented demand, combining our charity with The Eikon Charity secures a better future for all our young people, today.  Eikon is an award-winning Surrey based charity that has been working in the local Surrey communities for over two decades.  They provide long-term support to some of the county’s most vulnerable young people.  Their vision is to develop happy, thriving and resilient young adults who make a positive contribution to society.

We will continue to be involved at a local level with young people who through no fault of their own are at significant risk of failing academically and growing up without the skills to become successful adults and members of society. Lifetrain will continue to deliver Youth Achievement Awards through UK Youth, the employability skills course In2View and deliver support on the streets through the Bus-shelter Project.
