Community Safety Day for Older People - Wednesday, 16 March
A free NHS health check will be part of this year’s ‘bigger and better’ Community Safety Day for Older People at the Europa Gallery, Sutton Central Library, Wednesday, 16 March 10:30 - 2:30. More than 30 organisations will be taking part to help the borough’s elderly and vulnerable residents be aware of the range of services that are available to support them and to help keep them safe. The Community Safety Day is free to all residents and participating organisations. It is being organised by the Safer Sutton Partnership Service, which manages the borough community safety services, and Sutton Neighbourhood Watch and the Borough’s Libraries, Heritage & Arts Services. The Mayor of Sutton – Councillor Muhammad Sadiq – is due to attend at 11:00am when he will tour of all the information stands which include the Met Police, London Fire Brigade, Age UK and many others. The free health checks are being provided by LiveWell Sutton and Merton and are available to anyone aged 40-74 who lives or has a GP in the borough of Sutton and hasn’t had a health check in the past five years.
Last year’s Community Safety Day for Older People attracted more than 1,000 visitors.
Keep your home secure
Many of us know our streets and the time our neighbours’ depart and return from work and therefore when their property is likely to be empty or occupied. Call us on 999 immediately if you:
- see anyone you don’t recognise acting suspiciously near your own or your neighbours’ properties
- hear an unexpected loud bang or series of bangs or smashing glass from next door when you know the occupiers are away
Protect your home
- use timers on lights when it gets dark and change the rooms and times to avoid predictability. This will make you look like you are in when you are out. Burglars are far more likely to target a property if they believe the occupiers are out
- leave your front door and vehicle keys in a secure place out of sight and reach of your front door to prevent a potential burglar ‘fishing’ for the key through the letterbox
- use your key to lock your multi-point UPVC door otherwise it won’t be locked
- keep doors and windows shut and locked
- if you are going on holiday, ask a trusted neighbour to watch your home.
Suffering domestic abuse?
If you are suffering from domestic abuse and need help and support, the Safer Sutton Partnership Service co-ordinates the Domestic Violence One Stop Shop at Sutton Baptist Church, 21 Cheam Road, Sutton, SM1 1SN, Wednesdays, 9:30-11:30am. Since its launch four years ago, it has proved a lifeline to more than 1,000 victims of domestic abuse. Any victim of domestic abuse can attend this free drop-in service, where they will receive advice and support from an Independent Domestic Violence Advisor, specially trained police officer, solicitor, and other professionals. Victims can also call Victim Support for advice on: 020 7801 1777 (9:00am - 5:00pm Mon-Fri)
