Social Enterprise

Choose CSH Surrey, and society profits

CSH Surrey is a not-for-profit type of business called a social enterprise, which means it has a social ethos and exists to benefit its local communities. Any surplus is re-invested back into the organisation rather than being paid as dividends to shareholders. It is a member of Social Enterprise UK

CSH Surrey was the first social enterprise of its kind to be created out of the NHS in 2006. Then, a pioneering group of more than 560 nurses and therapists chose to set up their own business, believing they could deliver higher quality healthcare independently. CSH Surrey’s experience influenced Government policy, and in 2011, hundreds more public sector workers chose to follow the example of CSH Surrey, setting up their own independently owned organisations. Today, an increasing number of social enterprises are delivering public sector services. 

In 2011 CSH Surrey's then MDs, Jo Pritchard and Tricia McGregor, were awarded MBEs for Services to Social Enterprise.
