Easter 2022 Newsletter

Written by



We provide an audiobook lending service for anyone with an illness, disability, learning difficulty, or mental health condition, who finds that it affects their ability to read, or hold books in the usual way. We know that many older people who may feel isolated at home can benefit from the enjoyment of listening to our free audiobooks. We currently have some free memberships available for people living in the Sussex area, who might benefit from joining our service, but would find our usual membership fees a potential barrier.

Safer roads campaign

Written by

Sussex Safer Roads Partnership

Sussex Safer Roads Partnership (SSRP) are campaigning to ensure road users think of a safe and legal way to travel during festive celebrations.

Throughout December, SSRP will be working with Sussex Police to prevent and detect incidents of drink and/or drug driving, providing motorists with thought provoking information on the risk and impact of driving whilst under the influence.

Road users will be encouraged to think about alternative modes of travel during the festive period, such as nominating a designated driver, booking a taxi, or walking home with friends. Motorists are also reminded of the effect of alcohol or drugs the morning after, and are encouraged to consider the impact if stopped or involved in a collision whilst over the limit.

cyber heroes wanted

Written by

West Sussex County Council, in partnership with Get Safe Online, is starting a search for volunteers to become part of a new group of ‘Digital Ambassadors’.

Once accepted on to the scheme, these Ambassadors will receive a series of specially tailored training sessions, delivered by experts from Get Safe Online, to help them educate and support their local communities to become safer online. 

This could include one-to-one advice sessions, giving out leaflets or even hosting a webinar where the volunteer could share tips on how people can use the internet safely.
