Surrey Uncovered

Surrey Uncovered reveals the hidden need in our local communities and using the latest statistics, tells a story about the surprising inequalities and social disadvantage throughout the county. By using local statistics, the real need is exposed. In 2017, we updated our original 2013 research to show the changing nature of deprivation and other needs across the county. The original report can be downloaded here.
