Our focus for the first year of operation will be supporting young people in our borough.
Young People are our borough’s future. If we ensure they are cared for, we will positively influence and contribute to their future success and employability that will, in turn, support our borough in future years.
Sutton Giving will strive to ensure that the young people, living in more deprived wards in the borough, have a more positive start to life and are given opportunities akin to those in more prosperous boroughs.
