The High Sheriff of Surrey hosted a visit by the Vice Chairman of Surrey County Council to Transform Housing & Support in Epsom on 22 April.
Elizabeth Kennedy became High Sheriff of Surrey in March this year and is also the current Vice Chairman of Transform. She invited Vice Chairman of Surrey County Council Cllr Sally Marks to visit and find more about the work of Transform. Cllr Marks will shortly take on a two-year term as Chairman of the County Council.
Elizabeth and Sally visited Transform’s dry and drug-free accommodation at Stewart Court in Epsom. They met Supported Housing Manager Lorna Lathey and Deputy Manager Paul Travers from our Reigate team, which oversees the Stewart Court property.
The visitors met Transform clients Mark and Darren, who talked about how Transform has helped them. Thanks to our support, both Mark and Darren have managed to overcome the issues they faced and are now providing peer support to other people facing similar issues.
Mrs Kennedy and Cllr Marks then went on to tour several other Transform properties in the area. We provide supported housing for more than 140 homeless and vulnerable people in the Epsom, Mole Valley, Reigate & Banstead, and Tandridge areas.
