A newly funded Multi-level programme supporting residents aged 50+ living in the London borough of Sutton to enjoy activities and new social connections.
Our Let’s Connect programme, supported by major funder The National Lottery Community Fund, The Mercers Company and other small foundations and trusts, is a project that enables older Sutton residents to connect with their community. We do this through supporting people who may be lonely or isolated to develop their confidence and skills to connect with others, by running age-friendly events and groups across the borough, or by providing information and guidance that helps people to link in with local activities.
How does the programme work?
Using a person-centered approach, we will support you/our clients to think about what they want to achieve with our support and together we will plan a way to achieve this.
We can work with people in a variety of ways such as 121 support from our Community Connections Officers and volunteers, information about what’s on in the Borough, a diverse programme of activities running across the Borough.
Support from a Community Connections Officer and Volunteer to discover new activities and social opportunities.
