COVID: One Year On And Beyond – A Virtual Event
Wednesday 24 March; 10.30am
The pandemic has had a seismic effect on the disadvantaged in our society who are more likely to live in crowded housing, have unstable jobs and least afford laptops for their children, putting them and their families at greater risk physically, financially and academically.
The Surrey Care Trust has carried out several tranches of research over the last year to better understand not just the cumulative consequences of these challenges on the vulnerable people we support, but also how we can better deliver our services to meet their increasing needs.
As the one year anniversary of the first lockdown in the UK approaches, the Trust has undertaken further research to find out more about the support that people have needed from us and what other forms of help they have required over the 12 months.
Please join us at our event on 24 March, where we will share our insights into our findings and talk about our work to help vulnerable families and disadvantaged people across Surrey to cope through this tough time and thrive beyond.
Dr Ann Kenney, Independent Chair of Surrey Wellbeing Partnership, will also be joining us to discuss the wider implications of COVID19 on mental health in Surrey.

Virtual Challenge Events
The past few months have been challenging but there are some signs of hope, and this is what we want to continue to give to the 38,000 Surrey children who have been made vulnerable by the Covid-19 crisis. Take part in one of our virtual events to help us to continue to provide vital support for troubled young people and families across the county.
Take part in a 26 mile marathon walk and enjoy the stunning Surrey countryside. How you break it up is your choice; you could walk a mile a day for twenty six days, or walk more miles over fewer days – whatever suits you best.
Clocking up the miles on your treadmill, on the roads or through the countryside is a great way of keeping fit and improving your mental health. You could run a mile a day for twenty six days, or run more miles over fewer days – how you manage your marathon is up to you.
Lace up the trainers, grab your water bottle and get set, go for Surrey Care Trust’s 10k challenge. This could be running 2k in five days or running it all in one go – the choice is yours.
10 for 10 cycle challenge
Can you saddle up for the Surrey Care Trust and help us to provide a brighter future for families and young people we support by cycling 100km?
How you achieve this is up to you; you could cycle 10k in ten days, or you could cycle further and complete the challenge sooner.
10k Family Cycle Challenge
Get the kids off the Xbox and onto their bikes for a family cycle challenge that’ll get eveyone out for some exercise and help to support the Surrey Care Trust too. If you’ve got younger children then you could cover the distance over a period of time or cycle it all in one go – the choice is yours.
