Informed Choice Radio 101: Laura Thurlow, Love of Humanity

Laura Thurlow_ The Love of Humanity

Love of Humanity, Laura ThurlowSurrey is often considered to be an affluent county.

Yet 27,000 young people and children are living in poverty in Surrey, and more than 108,000 people are providing unpaid care.

In this episode of Informed Choice Radio, I speak to Laura Thurlow.

Laura is Deputy Director at Community Foundation for Surrey, working closely with donors to manage their funds and supporting them in awarding grants.

The Community Foundation for Surrey is an independent charitable trust established in 2005 to inspire local giving for local needs.

They work with donors who want to give something back to their local communities and voluntary groups providing vital services for local people and disadvantaged individuals.

In this episode of Informed Choice Radio, we talk about how philanthropy can fit within the overall framework of Financial Planning.

We look at Hidden Surrey and what constitutes poverty in the county. We also talk about how you can get involved and support the Community Foundation for Surrey in their work.

Welcome to Love of Humanity with Laura Thurlow, in episode 101 of Informed Choice Radio.
