Age UK Network News Roundup – 21/01/22

Take a look at the latest weekly roundup of news from across the Age UK Network.

It’s a bumper edition of the Network News Roundup this week! We start with news of Age UK Sutton’s age-friendly work, which has been selected as a case study on the Local Government Association website. There’s also details of Age UK Waltham Forest’s new footcare service and a request for help in sourcing some enamel pin badges for Age UK Cambridgeshire & Peterborough. We then have so many new vacancies this week that we can’t fit them all in this introduction – so do scroll right down for all the details! As always, if you have a story from your organisation that you would like us to share with the Network, such as recent events, campaigns, or awards, please let us know at signpost@ageuk.org.uk and we’ll add it to this roundup.


Age UK Sutton’s age-friendly work selected as Local Government Association Case Study

Age UK Sutton are pleased to have been selected as an example of innovation in local government on the Local Government Association (LGA) website. Age UK Sutton have been chosen as a case study for their work with Sutton Council to make the London borough a more age-friendly place and to continue improving life for older people in the community.

As the lead partner in the older people’s strand of the local area plan, Age UK Sutton are leading three pilot projects which have been formed in collaboration with local older people. These projects are: working with local businesses to make the high street more welcoming; encouraging take up of volunteering opportunities; and improving feelings of safety at home.

This work is part of a consultancy contract for research and development, rather than a service delivery commission, which Age UK Sutton believe is the first time that Sutton Council have contracted with a local charity, rather than a big firm, for work like this.

You can read the case study in full on the LGA website. If you have any questions about Age UK Sutton’s age-friendly work, please contact nicola.upton@ageuksutton.org.uk.
