Socially responsible businesses are encouraged to get involved to help raise money for community projects, volunteer skills, time, expertise and resources.

2018 has seen the successful opening of CMPP Woking; its focus is on improving the health and wellbeing in the community, a need identified and support by the local authority. CMPP Surrey Heath will launch in autumn 2018
