District events during Great Big Green Week
Here below are some events that we know are taking place in the District during Great Big Green Week, 10-18 June 2023:
New Public Health Childhood Immunisation campaign in West Sussex.
There has been a gradual decline in uptake of childhood immunisations nationally and this trend has been reflected in some areas of West Sussex over the past two years. The County Council is launching a new Childhood Immunisations awareness campaign which will run from 1 June to 31 August.
New host accommodation needed for refugee families.
As we rapidly approach 500 days since the start of the war in Ukraine, West Sussex County Council are appealing for a new cohort of hosts to open their doors to Ukrainian refugees.
For over a year, the West Sussex community have embraced the Homes for Ukraine scheme, providing safe and secure accommodation to thousands of guests across the county. These placements will be coming to an end for most guests, and yet, as the option to return to Ukraine is some way off, there is the need for new hosted accommodation to allow Ukrainians to fully settle into their new lives in the UK.
They are also looking to work with Landlords and Letting Agents who are interested in working with us and have properties to rent. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information about both opportunities.
West Sussex Waste Partnership.
As part of its mission to help reduce waste and increase recycling WSCC are running a short survey to gather information on recycling knowledge in West Sussex. It just takes a few minutes and your answers will help WSCC in the future. Results from this survey will directly feed into their next communications campaign spanning across the whole of West Sussex.
