Age UK Sutton
One Voice for Age was founded, in 2002, to ensure that the views of older people in Sutton, were represented and heard, and, in turn, that these voices aid the review of existing services and influence the development of services for older people
The initiative relies on a strong base of 40 – 50 volunteers (or members as the project calls them) who are trained to interview other older people. Some of these older people may be isolated due to ill health or disability and, without this active involvement and outreach, would not usually have their voice heard. These interactions are then applied in order to campaign on behalf of older people and represent their views to local policy and decision makers.
