Our vision and plans


It is our vision that:


West Sussex is a great place in which to grow up, achieve, raise a family and grow old, in strong, safe and sustainable communities – it is a place where improved health and wellbeing is experienced by all our residents, and the health and wellbeing gap between communities is reducing’


We work on a number of priorities and plans which supports this vision and are brought together in our Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy.

We have specific responsibilities for the following areas:


Assessment of the health and wellbeing needs of local residents. This is known as the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).

Developing a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy to meet the health and wellbeing needs identified in the JSNA.

Reducing the gap in health and wellbeing between communities.
