Adult social care - the life you want to lead

Help shape the future of adult social care in West Sussex.

We’re inviting people across the county to help shape the long-term future of adult social care to support current and future generations for years to come.

We’re keen to hear what is important to residents and what a good life means to them. The responses will help us develop our adult social care service in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic so that we can best meet the needs and expectations of those we support.

Survey closes on Monday 8 November.

Be inspired by the season

Autumn days can be full of bright sunshine with clear blue skies, but with that characteristic chill in the air that heralds the coming of winter.

It’s the perfect time of year to pop on a jacket (and often your sunglasses too!) and enjoy the riot of vibrant crimson and gold hues of the changing landscape.

Experience West Sussex have put together a collection of walks and trails, plus gardens and woodlands to visit so you can enjoy the bright sights of autumn in our county.
