From 1 April 2022, the West Sussex Library Service took over running the disability register for West Sussex. Thank you to the 2,000+ families who agreed to their registration information held by us at Amaze to be transferred to the new register. Additionally another 100 families have requested to join the new register.
WSCC have listened to feedback from parent carers and the new registration form will be shorter with less questions and the time between renewing the form will be increased. Additionally WSCC are relaxing the eligibility criteria so that families who are pre-diagnosis can benefit from joining the register. WSCC hope that the new form will go live in May 2022.
Those who sign up or renew from that date will be entitled to either a £5 shopping voucher or a Max Card, a national discount card providing hundreds of offers and valid for two years. The new register will also enable Carers to access the Carer Discount Card, which already includes over 150 discounts, provided by Carers Support West Sussex.
Children and young people can get involved in creating artwork for the new disability register and win an Amazon gift voucher. The deadline for entries has been extended to Tuesday 3 May so there’s still time. All the information you need is on the poster below.
