Moving film highlights the work of the Specialist Day Services

West Sussex County Council Specialist Day Services

A heart warming film showing how West Sussex County Council Specialist Day Services helps people with complex social care needs has just been released.

The services are provided for people with a physical, sensory or memory impairment, or with an acquired brain injury including dementia, who meet the County Council’s eligibility criteria for adult social care.  

The film features staff and volunteers who run the services along with the customers and their carers who use them. It also tells the story of people who have been helped to become more independent within their own community.

Peter Catchpole, Cabinet Member for West Sussex County Council’s Adults’ Services, said the film offers an opportunity for audiences to see behind  the scenes and view some of the invaluable work carried out.

He added: “It also shows that the staff who run our Specialist Day Services Centres are truly remarkable people. The care they give is second to none.  The story is told in their own words by our staff, our customers and their carers.”

The day services are provided at eight centres spread throughout West Sussex. Each offers a wide range of support to help adults to live as independently as possible and be part of their own community.
