Volunteers will remain an important and integral part of

What will happen to Sutton LINk staff?
Current LINk staff will be able to remain in post until March 2013 under an agreement with the Local Authority. Existing LINK staff may be transferred to a new organisation when Healthwatch is set up. A local Healthwatch will continue to be led by local members or volunteers and will be able to employ staff if they choose.
