Living and Ageing Well Awards 2015 – Nominations now open!

Surrey County Council are delighted to announce the launch of this year’s Living and Ageing Well in Surrey Awards 2015. Nominations are now open! Closing date is midnight Wednesday 7 October.

The awards provide an exciting opportunity for individuals, many of whom are volunteers, groups and services to be acknowledged for the positive contribution they make to their local community, improving services for older people to increase wellbeing and helping people to live and age well.

The Awards categories are based on the pledges from Surrey’s Commitment to Ageing Well which have been identified by older people in Surrey as being important to them as they age. And there’s more opportunity than ever this year with the addition of three new categories – carers’ support, dementia support and information and advice – bringing the total to nine!

More and more people in Surrey are living longer and we want to embrace this and recognise the many ways older people contribute to society and their local communities, and to build on the opportunities for improving the wellbeing of people in Surrey as they age.

Award Categories

  • Best Transport Project
  • Technology, Making a Difference Award
