Charity information

east to west

Relational Support Work (RSW) is a highly relational approach to pastoral care and wellbeing; actively journeying with people for as long as is needed, fostering trust and growing confidence. RSW provides space; to reflect on where they are at in life; to think on what is holding them back as well as to explore what is possible. It’s in this space that students are able to think, learn and reflect, enabling them to take greater ownership of their lives and be empowered to move forward.

Founded 1996

  • Mission statement

    East to west exists to ‘bring hope to lives’. Originally founded in Egham, Surrey in 1996, and now working across Surrey and the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, east to west annually works with in excess of 1,400 children, young people aged between 5 and 18 and their families over thirteen separate and different environments. The overarching outcome for east to west is that every student encounters Hope and that Hope nurtures resilience, confidence and the opportunity to thrive, both personally and academically. At the heart of east to west is Relational Support Work (RSW) which is reflected in all of our work and which we define as: a long term commitment to actively journey with children, young people and families through the issues that they are addressing.
