Introduction

W

elcome to the Adults’ Health, Wellbeing and Social Care Directory of Services within Sutton’s Voluntary and Community Sector. Services are listed alphabetically with a categorised index on pages 56 to 59 to help you find what you are looking for. Please be aware that some services have referral criteria so it is always wise to check the website or make contact via the phone number or email address provided. Sutton’s Adult Health, Wellbeing and Social Care Voluntary and Community Sector is made up of over 100 charities, community groups and social enterprises that all exist not to make profit but to purely benefit the community of Sutton. They are governed by people giving their time and expertise (trustees and committee members) without being paid. Whilst trustee/management committee boards are made up of unpaid experts, across the 100+ organisations there are well over 500 paid Chief Executives, Managers and Frontline Practitioners delivering a range of universal through to specialist interventions to adults in Sutton. Alongside these members of staff are a dedicated army of volunteers giving up their spare time to help improve outcomes for local people. Voluntary and community organisations secure a substantial amount of external funding to provide much needed services for local people. In addition to this, some organisations are commissioned by the London Borough of Sutton. All of these services make a significant contribution to the priorities and outcomes of a range of local strategies including the Joint Health & Wellbeing Strategy and the Sutton Safeguarding Adults Board priorities. For further information or guidance on seeking services within, or working in partnership with, the voluntary sector please contact Toni Walsh at Sutton Centre for the Voluntary Sector on 020 8641 9542 or toni@suttoncvs.org.uk

Our services start from a recognition of the psychological impact and social isolation which may result from sight loss or visual impairment.

Adults Services in Sutton

RESPECT is an intergenerational project delivered by Volunteer Centre Sutton. The project provides a fantastic opportunity to bring together older and younger people with the aim of improving perceptions. The ultimate aim of the project is to improve the perceptions of safety amongst Sutton residents and the project already has a strong history of doing just that. The project has worked with a number of schools in the borough including The Limes, Greenshaw, Carshalton Girls and Drapers’ where young people can count time spent on the project towards their volunteering hours. Older people from sheltered housing accommodation come together with the younger people to work on a particular project usually over a 6 week period; during this time they explore each other’s perspectives and learn to respect each other’s views and ways of life. 31 West Street, Sutton, Surrey SM1 1SJ Tel: 020 8661 5900 Email: vcsutton@vcsutton.org.uk www.vcsutton.org.uk

We deliver a broad portfolio of services to enhance community well-being through voluntary action, encouraging and supporting everybody who lives in or visits the London Borough of Sutton to volunteer. We run a number of our own volunteer projects, working with the most vulnerable members of society, from young offenders to the elderly housebound. These projects include a Befriending Plus programme which aims to prevent or reduce the need of social services through decrease of social isolation and loneliness by matching a volunteer befriender to a service user. We work with people in their homes, over the telephone, and out in the community through re-engagement with their local community. Referrals are made through the completion of a referral form that is submitted to our Befriending Coordinators. An initial assessment is then carried out prior to matching with a volunteer and risk assessments take place where deemed necessary. We have a list of referral criteria that can be supplied upon request. All service users will be lonely and socially isolated, and must be willing and able to engage in a meaningful relationship with a volunteer befriender. 31 West Street, Sutton, Surrey SM1 1SJ Tel: 020 8661 5900 Email: vcsutton@vcsutton.org.uk www.vcsutton.org.uk
