Our Local Charity of the Year
Since 2017 Surrey Choices has selected a Local Charity of the Year to partner with and fundraise for. By working in partnership with a local charity we can make a really big difference to a cause at the heart of our local community. Local charities rely on donations to ensure they can continue to offer vital support. Every penny helps them to make a difference!
We want to make as big and positive an impact as possible in our local communities by awareness-raising and fundraising.
Our Local Charity of the Year is chosen by our staff, customers, families, Carers and friends. We work together each year to spread the word about what the local charity does and why it is important to raise vital funds for them. We hold and take part in fundraising events and work together to raise money.
Throughout 2022 – 2023, we are committed to continuing to work in partnership with local charities and are proud to support Action for Carers Surrey. They are a charity who supports Carers of all ages, right across Surrey, with information, emotional support, and advice. If you are looking after a friend or family member who could not manage without your help, they can support you. Supporting Carers is important to Surrey Choices to ensure the needs of the people we support are being met, whilst keeping their support network involved and looked after.
In 2017 we supported Canine Partners and Shooting Star Chase, 2018 we supported Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance, in 2019 we supported The Fountain Centre.
Throughout the pandemic we have continued our corporate social responsibility and from January 2020 – March 2021 we supported Woking Mind. April 2021 – March 2022 we supported Surrey Disabled People’s Partnership.
