Strengthening West Sussex

This report gives a flavour of just some of the work that we have done with the 230+ community organisations who have already joined activities as community partners. It is hoped that it gives a taste of the breadth of skills and experience from professionals and volunteers working every day to improve peoples’ lives. We want to raise awareness, share ideas, inspire and invite others to get involved if they aren’t already, because together we are strong and resilient communities.

This short report shares just some of the uplifting work and links to lots more.

Not only did Healthwatch West Sussex give me a grant, but also they provided continued advice and support, and offered a way to link up with other services. We would have been much the poorer without Healthwatch and heartily commend them for the great job they do.
