Christmas 2023

For our Christmas card we invited images from services supporting children and young people that we fund across Surrey.

This year’s photograph was taken by a young person near the Canal in Woking, as part of an ‘Answers through Photography’ workshop run by charity Catch22.

The workshop is part of Catch22’s ‘Music to My Ears’ service that is funded by our office to support children and young people who have been directly affected by criminal exploitation. The Service helps them to express what they are feeling and build back their resilience through creativity:

This winter scene was captured in response to the question, “What does the future mean to you?” The young person said, “Although things seem cold and hard to navigate at the moment they could see a pathway though.”

On behalf of the Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner, we wish everyone a very happy and safe Christmas!
