Have you needed help or advice during the pandemic?

Have you needed help or advice during the pandemic? Have you helped someone else? Opportunity to tell East Sussex County Council about your experiences

East Sussex County Council want to improve how we share information about adult social care and coronavirus with local people. To help us do this,  we’ve asked an organisation called Activmob to speak to 50 people in East Sussex that have needed help during the coronavirus pandemic, or who have helped someone else like a family member, neighbour or friend. We’d particularly like to hear from men, older people, and people from an ethnic minority background.

We want to know: what do you know, or think, about social care in East Sussex? Are you getting the information and help you need during the pandemic? Have you had any problems getting information? What’s working well, or needs to improve?

You don’t need to have any experience or knowledge of adult social care to take part.

If you take part, the conversations will last about 30-40 minutes by phone, or by video call if you prefer. All the conversations are anonymous, unless we are worried that you or someone else is at risk of harm. You’ll be told at the time if this is the case.

If you would like to take part or be sent a briefing sheet with more information, please contact Debbie by phone or text on 07902 414133 or email debbie@activmob.org. Please let us know if you need an interpreter or translator.

It’s possible not everyone who gets in touch will take part as there are a maximum of 50 interviews.
