When the first lockdown began, we worked with our partners to create Sutton Community Hub.
More than 1,800 of you volunteered to help us deliver 5,800 food parcels, and more than 10,000 calls were made to residents.
The Hub has now evolved. It is the first point of contact for residents who need help which cannot be provided by family or friends. We refer these residents to services, groups and voluntary organisations which can address their needs.
Working with our partners, we aim to meet their short-term needs while finding long-term solutions. These could include mental health, finance, food, support groups and careers advice.
From care homes to clinically vulnerable residents, businesses to bereavement, we’re continuing to work with our partners to support Sutton through the pandemic.
But we face a big challenge. More and more children and adults are needing our help, while the cost of providing services is rising.
Find out how we plan to protect those needing our care and support Sutton’s recovery over the next 12 months.
