Higher Education Outreach Network (HEON)
Our strategic partners financially support us to expand our work - either through developing new programmes or extending into new areas. We couldn’t grow without them and thank them for all their support.
Our employer partners periodically host visits to their workplaces by groups of students, who get a chance to meet employees and ask questions. Volunteers and students then get to work on a challenge that gives a flavour of what the organisation does.

The Higher Education Outreach Network (HEON) is a partnership of local organisations including universities and colleges working in Surrey and North East Hampshire. Through both a programme of targeted outreach and the Outreach Hub, they aim to increase the rates of young people from local areas accessing higher education.

HEON is 1 of the 29 partnerships that make up the Uni Connect Programme across the country and work towards the government’s aim of supporting a rapid increase in the number of young people from under-represented groups who go into higher education.

Working with their partner organisations, HEON delivers outreach to local young people in Years 9 – 13. They offer impartial advice and information on higher education and progression routes, campus tours, subject tasters, mentoring and residential summer schools to name a few initiatives.
