QEF is pleased to announce that we’ve now opened a new shop in Chertsey. Situated near the Prince Regent pub it’s a great way to find some bargains and support our cause.

QEF Independent Living Services held a sports day at the David Weir Leisure Centre and the Mayor and Mayoress of Sutton Borough and the Mayor and Mayoress of Epsom and Ewell dropped in to watch.
It was one of the hottest days of the year! Thankfully there was plenty to do inside in the cool!
Thank you to the Mayors and Mayoresses and everyone that helped to make this a great day!

Tom and Loki, two QEF Vocational Services apprentices that are working as representatives of our Home & Garden Services are seen here putting the finishing touches to a garden that they have transformed in Fetcham.
Starting with overgrown shrubs that were blocking a lot of light, it has been transformed into a landscaped open space that bright, open and simple to take care of.
Jackie, whose garden it is, said: “It needed a lot of work. Too much for me. They’ve done a lot and I’m thrilled. I said ‘take everything out and do what you want, so long as it’s easy to maintain’. Now I can just give it a water now and again.”
“The boys on site here have been brilliant. I’d give then eleven out of ten! It’s great that this work supports a local charity too!”
The Institute of Fundraising has just announced the shortlisted candidates for their national awards this year and QEF has been nominated in the category of ‘Best Use of Direct Mail’ for our appeal for the Garden for Joy.
You can find out more about the Garden For Joy here and watch this space for some pictures from the recent opening of the garden at Dorincourt.
There is now unprecedented and increasing crossover between these once distinct sections as they work together to meet the needs of people with disabilities and help them to achieve their goals.
