West Sussex County Council (WSCC) is refreshing its Strategic Sensory Impairment Needs Assessment.

Healthwatch West Sussex, as the independent champion, in partnership with specialist community organisations has been asking people, of all ages, to share their views and experiences. Additionally, we have worked in partnership with the organisations providing services and support.

By engaging with people, communities, and service providers in this way, we hope to understand what is working well, what needs to change and understand where there are unmet needs. Having done this, we will seek to use this to inform future provision so people can live safe and well with their sensory impairment.
