The Chief Constable of Surrey Police and Patron of Transform Housing & Support Lynne Owens QPM has been awarded a CBE.
Lynne Owens QPM was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for her services to policing.
The Chief Constable has been our Patron since May 2012 and is a strong supporter of our work with homeless and vulnerable people in the Surrey area. She is one of a number of Chief Constables who have been Patrons of Transform throughout our history, in recognition of our close partnership with Surrey Police.
Lynne recently visited two of our housing projects for young people in Woking: Pound House and The Crescent. These homes accommodate 25 young people aged 16 to 30, many of whom were homeless or in crisis when they came to Transform. Each year Transform helps more than 1,000 homeless and vulnerable people across the Surrey area.
Paul Mitchell, Chief Executive of Transform Housing & Support, said:
“On behalf of everyone at Transform, I would like to congratulate Lynne on being awarded a CBE. We are very proud to have her as one of our Patrons and are delighted at the recognition of her great service to the Police Service.”
The Queen’s Birthday Honours, announced every year on the Queen’s official birthday on 12 June, recognise the achievements of a wide range of people across the UK who have made an extraordinarily positive impact on their community. This year a total of 1,163 people received awards.
