About Us

Welcome to

West Sussex Partners in Care

We represent all independent providers of care in West Sussex, like the West Sussex Forum that we are replacing which was founded 14 years ago. We have reviewed, updated and renewed our services, and to signal this fresh start we have re-branded as West Sussex Partners in Care, a not for profit organisation that will work in partnership with our key stakeholders including Care Providers, West Sussex County Council and CCGs. 

The pressures faced by the care industry can be alleviated through co-working with the commissioners to achieve common aims. Every one of the organisations we represent is subject to rigorous regulation. Far reaching changes are occurring which affect us all and give us the opportunity to innovate and demonstrate the quality of our services. Life expectancy is rising with the pressure for older people and in particular dementia care becoming critical.

WHAT WE DO

OUr SERVICES

Workforce Development

One of our strategic aims is to improve care provider Workforce Development across the county. We champion those that take the time to improve themselves at our annual Care Accolades Awards, and work hand in hand with West Sussex County Council’s (WSCC) learning and development team to shape the training offer that they provide to external care providers of all shapes and sizes.Award winner pictured with presenter and award.


We meet with the WSCC learning and development team to shape the provision of the learning and development offer available to West Sussex care providers. If you feel that something is missing from the courses on offer, or if you think something could be done more effectively, please contact us as we are here to represent your views.

Advise, Inform and Influence

We aim to make partnership with members and other stake-holders work based on transparency, knowledge, understanding and mutual respect and support to the benefit of all.

 

Every one of the organisations we represent is subject to rigorous regulation under the Care Quality Commission and other quality checks. Far reaching changes are occurring which affect us all and give us the opportunity to demonstrate the quality of our services.

 

As a collective, we are better placed to communicate with our commissioners; to influence the policy makers and the better informed we are the more influential we are likely to be.

 

Sharing

Our aim is in supporting those in the business of care. In bringing together a wide range of independent providers of care, we have an opportunity to share experiences, knowledge and skills which come from leading such companies.

 

We all face common challenges such as regulatory requirements in allocation of resources, investment to improve services, training and recruitment. At the same time we face common cost pressures HR issues and other similar themes faced by business people and entrepreneurs nationwide.

 

To share these challenges and create a forum of mutual learning and respect can only serve to help in the ultimate outcome: excellence in care for all.
