Diary of a Sutton Councillor

Carers Forum

I attended this special December meeting of the Carers Forum. The main topic of discussion was about Christmas Shopping from a Carers Perspective. The Sutton Town Centre Manager Emily Fahey and Edwina McCarthy, Access Officer for Sutton Centre for Independent Living and Learning had been invited to talk about the work they had been doing to improve disabled access in Sutton and also gave carers the opportunity to bring their attention to other issues they faced when shopping in the town centre. It was sad to hear of the thoughtlessness and ignorance carers sometimes faced when just trying to do the things everyone else does.

We were reminded that there is a Sutton High Street Access Guide with information about disabled access to shops and services in Sutton.

The Forum finished with a Christmas quiz and a sing-song courtesy of Joan and her electric organ.
