Independent Living accommodation and Sutton Connect

Find out more about the Independent Living service we provide and the targeted housing support we provide for people 55+.

Independent Living accommodation

Independent Living accommodation is self-contained accommodation that has been designed primarily to help people aged 55 and over live independently. 

Residents in our schemes have access to an Independent Living Officer who can help them find any extra support needed to sustain their tenancy and carry on living in their home for as long as possible. There are various schemes across Sutton, Carshalton and Wallington with a number of health and wellbeing activities available throughout the year such as:

  • Coffee Morning and Independent Living Surgery
  • MacMillan Coffee Morning
  • Quizzes 

Sutton Connect

Sutton Connect provides targeted housing support for people aged 55 or over who are residents of the London Borough of Sutton.

They help residents develop skills to enable them to sustain their accommodation, live in housing for as long as possible and access and engage with services and activities that aid independence.
