Complex and Compounded: the challenges people in Surrey face today.

Earlier this year, we surveyed 100 of our beneficiaries - parents, children, and young adults - to understand their needs and the challenges they face. This is what we found out.

Nearly all of our beneficiaries initially come to us with one specific need. This could be needing support with parenting, help with school or relationship issues, struggling with poor mental health, or having difficulty in finding employment.

However, the truth is more complicated, and the challenges are more difficult to overcome.

Our research (found here) shows just how interconnected people’s problems are, and how vital it is that we support them holistically. It is only by helping people to address as many of their needs as possible that we can help them to secure lasting change.
