Transform Housing & Support welcomes the President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Surrey, Professor Max Lu, as a new Patron.
Professor Lu was previously the Provost and Senior Vice-President at the University of Queensland, Australia following the post of Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) for five years to 2014.
Professor Max Lu is very impressed with the work of Transform and said:
“Transform is making a huge difference to improving lives of those vulnerable and homeless. Helping them with housing and much needed support offers them safety, confidence, inspiration and hope for a better future."
Paul Mitchell, Chief Executive of Transform Housing & Support, said:
“We are delighted that Professor Max Lu has so kindly agreed to become a patron of Transform, his support means a great deal to us. We look forward to working with him and the University of Surrey to help us make a greater impact in transforming the lives of homeless and vulnerable people.”
Transform provides housing and support to around 1,200 people each year in Surrey and neighbouring areas. We give each person a safe place to live, with one-to-one support to help them live independently. Last year 98% of the people we helped said they felt happier thanks to Transform’s support.
