There is still time to have your say on the way West Sussex County Council delivers some adult social care services.

A public survey has been running since 4th May to gather views from residents, carers, and those using social care services on plans to modernise some areas.

The plans will see exactly the same levels of service to those who use them but delivered in fewer buildings.

The council wants feedback on proposals for the delivery of the following services over the next five years:-

• Specialist day services
• Learning disability day services
• Residential and respite services for Learning Disability and Older People
• Shared Lives services – where carers look after adults, who are unable to live independently, in their own home

The survey closes on Thursday 31st May.

Under the proposals, put together after engagement with staff, people who use the services, families and carers, the council will continue to offer services and activities in some residential homes and centres but there will be a move to offer more opportunities for support in the local community.

Amanda Jupp, Cabinet Member for Adults and Health said: “I would like to thank everyone who has taken part in the survey so far.

“We know that changes to adult care services can be unsettling, but I am confident these proposals will mean we can meet the needs of our most vulnerable residents in the way they would like.

“While these proposals are wide-ranging, it is important to stress that there will be no reduction in levels of support given to the people who use them.

“There is still time to take part in the survey, and I would urge anyone whose loved ones make use of these services to share their views before the survey closes.”

Those wishing to take part in the survey should visit www.westsussex.gov.uk/choicesforthefuture before Thursday 31st May.
