How it works

You can get involved as much or as little as you want to, from filling in surveys, giving feedback on campaigns, taking part in discussion groups, or sitting on project panels.

We'll match your skills, experience and preferences with the appropriate opportunities and topics in East Sussex as they arise. For example, if you'd like to join workshops or events, and have experience of or interest in housing issues, then we would invite you to attend a housing event if one was being planned.

You don't need to live in the county in order to join, but you should have an interest in how adult social care services are delivered to residents locally. If you have an interest in getting involved with children's services our website contains details on this as well.
