“In Sutton we are proud that our voluntary and community sector works so well together, and works effectively with the council,  local GPs and other partners.
“I am therefore very pleased to announce that Sutton Council is asking Age UK Sutton to be the lead partner for the older people’s strand of the Sutton Plan.”
Chief Executive of Age UK Sutton, Nicola Upton, said: “We are pleased to be asked to take on this lead role in the Sutton Plan. As the only charity in Sutton offering such a broad range of services for older people, we want to use this opportunity to bring together our dynamic community, including organisations, professionals and individuals and use our collective voice to make Sutton a great place to grow older.”
Age UK Sutton is an independent, local charity working across the borough of Sutton. The charity marked its 25th birthday last year.
