Team recognised in the Surrey Care Awards 2017

We are thrilled that our Growth Team were shortlisted for the Surrey Care Awards 2017.

Now in their ninth year, the Surrey Care Awards are the county’s ‘Oscars’ for those who work in the care sector. Organised by Surrey Care Association, these awards recognise the dedication of people working in a wide variety of jobs in adult social care including dementia care, caring for people in their own homes and caring for adults with learning disabilities.

Music garden opens at Lockwood Activity Centre

Customers from Lockwood Activity Centre were in a celebratory mood this week when the centre’s new Music Garden officially opened.

The opening coincided with the centre’s open day event and customers were keen to demonstrate what the Music Garden has to offer.

The Music Garden is another great opportunity for our customers to be able to build skills, express themselves and improve communication through musical instruments.

Opportunities on offer for people with complex needs

Two Surrey Choices employees spoke of the opportunities on offer for children and young people with complex conditions at a Transition Training Day held at New Woking Hospice recently.

Christina Earl, Acting Operations Director, and Bobby Williams, Activity Facilitator from the Guildford Office Project, described how young people with a range of support needs can make the successful transition from children’s services to adult care if given the right opportunities.
