Opened 10 Jan 2020

Results expected 15 Mar 2020

Feedback updated 9 Dec 2020

We asked

We asked about support for families with children under five years.

You said

You told us that whilst several services worked well, it was still difficult to find information. You requested better information about school readiness, speech & language, managing behaviour and child development.

We did

As a result we have established 4 pilot initiatives to:

  • develop an integrated child development service,
  • improve speech & language (school readiness) knowledge,
  • make advice and support for parents more easily available,
  • initiate a Sutton Best Start campaign to highlight opportunities, support and services for families with young children.


The London Borough of Sutton (LBS) and Sutton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are reviewing services for families with children under five years old to ensure they can have the ‘Best Start in Life.’  

LBS and Sutton CCG are committed to ensuring that services reflect the priorities of local families and the needs of their children.


Why your views matter

We want to understand which services parents think work well and identify any areas for improvement.
