The Bishop of Guildford and the Lord Lieutenant of Surrey visited Transform Housing & Support on Tuesday 8 March.
The Bishop of Guildford, Right Reverend Andrew Watson, and the Lord Lieutenant of Surrey, Michael More-Molyneux, both became Patrons of Transform in 2015. The visit was a chance for them to find out more about Transform’s work with homeless and vulnerable people across the county.
Our Patrons visited Transform’s hostel in Walton on Thames, which provides accommodation for 10 homeless people from Elmbridge, Runnymede and Spelthorne. They met our client Sharron, who explained how living with Transform has helped her to get her life back on track.
Paul Mitchell, Chief Executive of Transform Housing & Support, said:
“I was delighted that the Bishop of Guildford and the Lord Lieutenant of Surrey were able to visit and see Transform’s work first-hand. Although Surrey is an affluent area, sadly there are many people each year who find themselves homeless or in housing crisis. Transform gives people a safe place to live and helps them to get back on their feet. We are very grateful to Bishop Andrew and Michael More-Molyneux for kindly supporting our work.”
