The People Bank

Get involved and help shape adult social care services




What is the People Bank?

The People Bank is a group of volunteers working with East Sussex County Council.

Members get involved in opportunities, sharing their knowledge, and lived experience to help influence the way that social care for adults is provided in East Sussex.

Being a People Bank Volunteer makes a difference to others but also offers opportunities to connect with new people, develop new skills and grow your confidence.
