Amaze has been managing the Compass Disability Register for 0-25s in West Sussex for the last 5 years, and in Brighton & Hove for the last 18 years, and hope to continue to do so for many more years to come.
We know how much families in West Sussex enjoy the benefits that come with joining the Compass West Sussex (WSx) Disability Register, including discounts, special offers and freebies at leisure venues across Sussex, as well as regular e-newsletters with information relevant to your family. Whilst we all love a discount or freebie, that’s not all the Compass has to offer. By having Compass Card offers, Amaze builds strong relationships with leisure providers in the community, helping with their understanding of inclusivity, as well as providing advice and signposting where required – all contributing to a more inclusive community within West Sussex.
Most importantly, the Amaze Compass West Sussex Disability Register provides West Sussex County Council (WSCC), the NHS and other service providers e.g in the voluntary sector, with vital, anonymous information about children and young people with SEND and their needs. This ensures that WSCC and other local organisations shape their services to serve the needs of the community in the best way.
The Amaze contract to manage the West Sussex Disability Register (Compass) finishes in March 2022, so WSCC has launched a survey for parent carers to find out how you think the WSx Disability Register should look in the future. The survey takes just 5 minutes to complete and your opinion will help to shape this important service in the near future. The deadline for completing the survey is 1st June 2021.
The survey asks about various factors relating to the current and future service, for example:
- In question 4, you will be asked if you have any objections to your child or young person’s data being held by a charity, business, Council.
If you are happy for Amaze, or another charity, to hold your data confidentially and securely (as we do now) then you need to tick ‘no’ against a ‘voluntary sector organisation’, showing you have no objections to this.
- In question 8, you’ll be asked to consider what would incentivise you to complete the registration form. If you’re unfamiliar with the current options, you can find out more about the many local discounts across Sussex currently provided by the Compass Card here or the Max Card here.
We’re really grateful for you finding time to respond to the survey if you can, to ensure WSCC hears from local families how they would like this service to be run in the future. Thanks!
