We have received two letters from care providers who operate in West Sussex.

The Department receives representations from care providers on a regular basis on a number of issues and we work with providers through the Care Provider Alliance to consider targeted action to address the issues.

The Government continues to engage with the care sector, including care providers, to understand their concerns about their financial viability and the sustainability of services.
