Age UK Suffolk has always worked with older people in Suffolk to give them an opportunity to have their views heard through one to one interviews and community group consultations.  

Community Engagement


The Voice project, which was the original scheme established to carry out these consultations, has now changed its name to better reflect its role within Age UK Suffolk, and the community, to Community Engagement, and the Voice Interviewer is now the Community Engagement Officer. 


The role remains the same; to seek the views of older people in the community on issues of interest and relevance to them in order to influence and inform the services delivered to older people.  

Following the consultation the resulting report, with recommendations, is then disseminated to relevant organisations in Suffolk and more widely where appropriate.

If you would like to participate in a consultation or would like further information about Community Engagement please contact: or ring 07738858471.  We are always pleased to welcome new participants (either individuals or groups) to our consultations.

The latest report commissioned by Suffolk County Council can be downloaded here and also a report on our panel’s experience of life changing events and how they dealt with them.
