3VA, HVA and RVA the Councils for Voluntary Service in East Sussex are working with East Sussex Better Together and other partners  on a project to understand better how best to support local Community Activity and the work of local neighbourhood groups.  Did you know there are over 60,000 people in East Sussex who describe themselves as being active in their community?*

We know that strong communities are an amazing thing, but did you know they also have benefits to health and wellbeing?  This is why we want to help support and build stronger communities. To do this we need to get a better understanding of what works and how. Through the East Sussex Better Together programme, we want to find out and agree what we can all do to build on the strengths and resources communities already have, make changes across the county, and agree how we can work more practically in local areas.

We would be very pleased if you would take a little time to complete this survey to give your insight. Watch out also for events and other initiatives in your locality through which you can give your views and network with other groups and service providers. For further information about this survey please email resilience@hvauk.org or telephone 01424-444010 to Speak with Steve Manwaring the compiler of this study
