Residents are being asked to have their say on proposed changes to Care and Support at Home for those people who have eligible social care needs.
West Sussex County Council’s contract arrangements for purchasing Care and Support at Home come to an end in January 2021 and residents are encouraged to share their views on the proposed new arrangements.
Focusing on people’s strengths and support networks and on the outcomes and goals they want to achieve are some of the priorities set out in the new proposals.
They also aim to improve council systems and reflect a more local approach to purchasing services.
Amanda Jupp, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care said: “It is important that people with an interest in these services have a say in the way the services are provided, and that the proposed changes meet the needs of the residents of West Sussex.
“Before the changes are made I would encourage as many people as possible to take part in the survey to give their views.”
The consultation runs from 9 August to 15 September.
