Committee Members write to, and arrange regular meetings with, a wide variety of decision makers on topics that are important to older people.
They also regularly attend meetings (some which are public, some by invitation) where the agenda is such that it is relevant to make the needs of older people in the area known.
Please find below copies of any current letters and details of meetings.
The Mid Sussex Health and Wellbeing Network is open to any organisation with an interest in the health and wellbeing of people who work, live or visit Mid Sussex.

To inform our representations, the views of older people living in Mid Sussex are collected in a variety of ways – see the “Reports” page.
We are keen to hear from you about any issue you are concerned about – leave a message on 01444 242760, email email@example.com or use the contact us page.
If it is an issue impacting you we will help you get in touch with the people who can help if appropriate.
If it is an issue impacting older people generally in the area, then we will, subject to our resources which means we have to prioritise what we do, raise the issue with the relevant people on a general basis.
Our priority issues that we are aiming to tackle in 2015 were care and housing. We also introduced and are carrying forward in 2016 work to connect to communities – especially in the villages in Mid Sussex and are working on partnership to tackle fuel poverty through the Heat for Health initiative. We have featured Creating Safer Communities and are also continuing to tackle other issues too, such as increasing the numbers of older people getting connected via the internet, and community safety.
