UPDATE - Coronavirus update from West Sussex County Council - 15 May 2020
Dear residents and partners,
We know that the current situation is affecting our residents in various different ways and we would like to understand how we can effectively support you.
We are launching a survey to gather your views and to assess the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on your lives.
Tell us how your lives have changed, how you are coping and what your thoughts are on life after this crisis. Your answers will help to shape our response to the current crisis as well as our plans for the future.
Please take 10-15 minutes out of your day to complete this very important survey by Sunday 31 May 2020.
Thank you in advance for your time and for your continued support.
