Community Partnerships - 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.

Recognising the crucial role that community and voluntary sector groups and organisations of all shapes, sizes and focusses play, Healthwatch West Sussex took the decision in 2018 to fund greater community collaboration and partnership. Working together with others allows us to reach and support more people. We use what we hear to enable the improvement of health, social care and wellbeing for individuals, families and communities throughout West Sussex by working with the NHS and Local Authorities.

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.

We are proud to have played a part in this shared endeavour, enabling a flourishing network of community organisations to grow. We acknowledge the value of working in partnership and recognise the immense effort of local communities and voluntary and community sector partners support the health and wellbeing of our communities across West Sussex.
