WEST SUSSEX COUNTY COUNCIL Case Study: building effective, system-wide community partnerships that support strengths-based adult social care

14:15 - 15:15

In this session, West Sussex County Council adult social care will explore how it approached the challenge of delivering strengths-based, community-led support in a truly person-centred way by working across directorates and partnerships.

Attend to hear:

  • How West Sussex is changing its relationship with service users and its practice approach through a ‘silent revolution’
  • How the service is using strengths-based conversations and connecting people within their communities
  • From leaders in the system, practitioners and community partnership officers about they work together to deliver change at local level
