Shopping for our daily needs is an essential part of life. As you get older, or if you have problems with mobility, you may find going to the shops more difficult.

Relying on others to do your shopping can be frustrating because they might not always get exactly what you want. But there are services in your area to help you get to the shops, even if you are struggling to walk as well as you used to.

Your local community shopping service will collect you from your home in a minibus, take you and others to a local supermarket, and provide an escort to ensure that you can get about once you arrive there.

Sutton Community Transport runs shopping trips on Thursdays and Fridays. Find out more about how to become a member and join the trips.
