Sparks Fly at Speed Dating in Staines

Our first Surrey Choices Speed Dating evening in Staines was not only about romance but meeting new people, broadening social lives outside the usual day opportunities and just plain old fun!

The positive aspects of this event focused on the great prospects of making a positive impact for our customers. The aim to support our customers and other people with a variety of support needs to develop friendships and relationships is a very important goal. By achieving this it can help combat isolation and loneliness and improve health and well being.

Gardening together achieves new practical outdoor space

The Surrey Choices’ Growth Team and the Empower Results team from Aon Plc joined forces on Thursday 11 June to landscape our Short Breaks Banstead.
Our Growth Team usually take on a variety of countryside management projects, maintaining rights of way across the county including large public spaces but it was a great experience to work on something closer to home. The team worked hard sprucing up the grounds of our brand new Short Breaks accommodation to ensure each guest has a beautiful outdoor space to enjoy.
