A new survey asking residents how they would like to receive information about key services has been launched by Sutton Council.

Advice on who is eligible for social housing, what childcare services are available and who can help with caring for an elderly relative are just some of the issues forming part of the review into the authority's information services.

The survey will look at services provided by the council as well as those commissioned to outside organisations.

Councillor Simon Wales, lead member for finance, assets and the voluntary sector, said: "We want to ensure that all residents can access information and advice when they need to and in ways that suit them.

"Whether it’s advice about dealing with debt, finding social housing or accessing healthcare, it’s important that residents know where to go and that they are given the support they need.

“I hope that as many residents as possible will take part in this survey and give us their feedback so that we can improve the services provided by both the council and our partners.”
