Care and Support at Home – Consultation

By September 2, 2019 September 5th, 2019 FrontPageMain

Around 1900 people across West Sussex currently receive care and support at home (domiciliary care), which is purchased for them by West Sussex County Council.

These contract arrangements for purchasing domiciliary care come to an end in January 2021. The Council has developed a new approach and residents are invited to share their views on the proposed new arrangements

Some of the priorities set out in the proposals include:

  • Focusing on peoples strengths and support networks;
  • Achieving a set of goals and outcomes;
  • Improving Council systems.

If you would like to have your say on the proposed arrangements you are encouraged to complete a survey which forms part of a wider programme of engagement around the provision of Care and Support for people who have eligible social care needs. The survey will close on Sunday 15 September 2019.

If you would like a copy of the consultation document and survey in an alternative format, such as Easy-Read please contact West Sussex County Council on 03302 224145 or via email to adultscommissioning@westsussex.gov.uk. If you are deaf or hard of hearing and have the NGT app installed on your laptop, PC or smartphone, you can contact us on 18001 03302 224145.
