GASP Motor Project provides hands-on, customised programmes in basic motor mechanics and practical engineering skills for young people aged 14 to 19 years. Sessions are run at the purpose-built GASP workshop at Albury and from a mobile vehicle that delivers countywide. In the year 2014-2015, over 150 young people benefitted from 300+ evening, daytime and after school sessions at GASP, learning basic motor mechanics and life skills that contribute to their positive personal development. The HSYA grant funded sessions for students at Bishop David Brown School in Sheerwater, an area identified as within the 14% most deprived areas nationally, and the most deprived in Surrey. “I visited GASP’s modern workshop to see at first-hand the accredited programmes being run there by qualified engineers,” says Peter Lee. “GASP works with Surrey County Council mainstream and special schools and with Surrey Police and the PCSOs to identify ‘at risk’ young people and actively involve them in the sessions, to get them off the streets and have a positive influence on their behaviour.”
