We want to make Sutton a great place to grow older, and a key part of that is giving people the opportunity to get involved in their local community and pursue activities they enjoy

group of people at home

Evidence shows that engaging in social activities is one of the key factors in successful ageing, creating noticeably positive effects for people in later life 

We are committed to empowering Sutton's older population by offering a variety of social opportunities, coupled with personal engagement and support to encourage them to explore and attend these activities. We aim to expand older adults’ range of social contacts, and broaden their participation in community life.   

What's on offer?

In addition to local activities and events run by Age UK Sutton, we can also connect you to other local social opportunities. Explore the full range of events and activities here

A little help to get there

Sometimes, it can be quite daunting to start a new activity or get involved with a new group, especially if you don't know anyone. 

It's normal to feel a little nervous, and it helps to have a little moral support when you're starting something new for the first time. We often accompany clients starting new activities or the groups for the first time, to make introductions and help to get them settled.
