Surrey is one of the largest counties in Britain with a population of over a million people. While it is a largely affluent county, this apparent prosperity masks pockets of high deprivation which can often be neglected and lead to some marked inequalities.
Our report, Surrey Uncovered, pinpoints these inequalities to guide funders and philanthropists on future areas of support. The report looks at the overall statistics for Surrey but, more importantly, drills down to the local level so that pockets of need are not masked by adjacent affluent areas. It reveals the reality of living in Surrey for those who are struggling and need help – problems such as high child poverty, unemployment, isolated older people and a high proportion of low income and lone parent households.
