Accent Housing and Surrey Choices

Over the past few months, Surrey Choices has been working with Accent Housing Association to provide assistance to their residents to maintain their gardens. This partnership formed when Accent had to withdraw the assisting gardening service they used to offer to some of their elderly and vulnerable residents.

Surrey Choices provide a range of support services dedicated to improving independence, confidence and life skills of people with a range of disabilities and support needs in their local community.
