The Eikon Charity helps children and young people to feel safe, heard and supported. We listen, we talk, and we help young people with the skills they need to live their best life. And we work with families and professionals to make sure everyone gets the support they need. Understanding and giving support for challenges early can often stop problems from becoming much bigger – and we believe every child deserves to feel safe and heard.

Eikon is a charity that aims to improve outcomes for young people, building their resilience, wellbeing and aspirations. Eikon provides support in schools, for families and in communities to help overcome difficulties before they escalate.

As well as promoting wellbeing in schools, Eikon manages the counselling services delivered in local communities through Surrey Wellbeing Partnership partners: Learning Space, Relate West Surrey, Step by Step and YMCA East Surrey.
 
Eikon’s vision is to develop happy, thriving and resilient young adults who contribute positively to society.

Eikon’s programmes aim to support young people by:

  • Inspiring greater self-confidence, aspiration, and resilience
  • Enabling them to make positive, independent decisions
  • Helping them become positive citizens in their community

Eikon strongly believes in early intervention - helping young people overcome difficult personal issues, before they become long-term, damaging problems.
