Website planned maintenance
We will be making some upgrades to the Sutton website on Wednesday 29 March from 5pm for approximately 3 hours. If you need to use the website, please try again later. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.
The Local Account showcases Sutton Council's ambitions and achievements in a year severely impacted by the pandemic. It highlights the support provided to the most vulnerable adults in the borough and the approach to care, which is adaptable, responsive and keeps people safe.
The Council’s commitment throughout the year remains putting people first, to maximise wellbeing by bringing together the right services, to deliver the right support, at the right time and place.
Key achievements in 2020/2021 include:
A local resident whose family member has received support from the START team said:
“I’d like to thank you all for the amazing support you’ve given my aunt since her discharge from hospital. I think you are all doing a fantastic job under very difficult circumstances and your dedication and support to your elderly vulnerable clients is awesome. Sincere thanks.”
Councillor Marian James, Chair of the People Committee at Sutton Council said:
"Our ambition in Sutton is to make sure that everyone has access to the right information to help them make the right choices for themselves and their families. I want to thank the individuals, teams and organisations who have worked tirelessly throughout a very challenging year so that people can continue to live safely in their community."
"We will continue to face challenges next year, however I am confident that by taking the right steps and working together with our partners to transform our services, we will overcome these, to provide the highest quality of care and support."
Nick Ireland, Strategic Director of People Services at Sutton Council said:
"Through the combined hard work of our staff, partners, volunteers and carers, we can continue to be ambitious and ensure that Sutton's most vulnerable people and their families living in our communities are given the support they need. Our Local Account provides some great examples of our achievements as well as some inspiring personal stories which demonstrate the value of working together as a community to protect those most in need."
The results and achievements from 2020/21, as well as future plans for Adult Social Care 2021/22 are available in the Local Account Annual Report.
