Supporting an ageing population

  • We will work to develop a dementia friendly community, following the successful, pioneering scheme at Sutton Council (a Lib Dem-run administration).
  • We will work to close the gaps between the NHS service and borough social service provision for the most vulnerable in our community
  • We would look to fund a modern Almshouse strategy to allow older residents to downsize and stay in the borough
  • We will work with Lib Dems across the country to delivery the NHS and social care plan, seeing a penny raised on income tax to protect the NHS and the social care plan brought under the same umbrella, and ever closer integration and partnership between health and social care
