Announcing our latest Community Fund recipient

Wey House School in Bramley is the latest grant recipient of the Charles Russell Speechlys Community Fund – a fund launched by Charles Russell Speechlys last year to support projects in Surrey with a focus on employment, training and skills initiatives.

Thanks to a grant of £1,200, Wey House School will run a pilot ‘Team Teach’ Behaviour Management Course for Parents in May. This will focus on the challenges that parents face outside of school, from managing aggression and resolving conflict to listening skills. The school hopes to roll out a longer programme in the next academic year.

Sally Ashford, Partner at Charles Russell Speechlys in Guildford said: “We are delighted to support Wey House School as it develops its training programme for parents of young people with social, emotional and mental health issues. Wey House School impressed our panel with its application, not only with the programme itself but also the efforts to make the course accessible by offering childcare and ongoing support to ensure parents have the resources they need to support their families.”

Kate Peters, Grants Manager at Community Foundation for Surrey added: “We are pleased to work with Charles Russell Speechlys to support community projects in Surrey. We see the real difference grants such as this make, providing much needed resources for local initiatives.”

The Charles Russell Speechlys Community Fund has already provided grants to a range of beneficiaries in Surrey, including Skillway, The Boileroom Originate, Challengers and Change of Scene.
