Afghan Surrey Heath Support - Update Friday 17 September 2021

Date: 

Friday, 17 September, 2021

The Council is playing its part to help individuals who now face almost certain death, as a result of their work in supporting UK troops serving in Afghanistan.  The costs of this support are met by central Government as part of a nation-wide scheme.  Surrey Heath has a significant military heritage, and we are proud to be able to offer support to those who have played an important part in assisting our troops abroad.

We'd like to reassure all residents that this work does not affect services and support for anyone in our community. Our Family Support team and partners such as The Hope Hub and Besom foodbanks continue to respond to the needs of local residents, and we're grateful for the fantastic support of many people across the Borough for their time and generosity in supporting this work.
