#WestSussexCrowd

Created by West Sussex County Council

Contact us talkwithus@westsussex.gov.uk

We are running two events on the 7th May - see events tab above West Sussex is full of people with great ideas who come together to make things happen to improve their communities. The West Sussex Crowd helps to connect those ideas that make a positive difference with supporters, to raise funds to make projects happen. Local communities know what they need and crowdfunding is a great way to harness the ideas, energy and resources to make things happen. There is a range support available for projects running campaigns, including workshops and webinars. West Sussex County Council (WSCC) is the driving force behind this initiative and has a £280,000 Community Initiative Fund (CIF) for projects running campaigns. This replaces the way WSCC has allocated its funding previously. PITCH YOUR PROJECT IDEA BY TUESDAY 28 MAY 2019. What are you waiting for? Upload your project to showcase your idea, inspire others, create energy within your community, gather supporters and make it a reality!

Our Journey

Helping Hand started fundraising!19 hrs ago
Disabled visitor facilities
Disabled visitor facilities joined West Sussex Crowd 3 days ago

We will create a modern mobile unisex disabled toilet fitted with a wash/dry toilet for max comfort and ease of use, with a comfort height toilet pan with soft closing lid, approved cistern, special basin, long handled lever action mono basin mixer tap to prevent scalding, high visibility grab rails with a toilet roll holder, soap dispenser and hand dryer. We will add a back support cushion rail and remote easy -flush control, and upgrade the shower to provide full washing facilities. As user safety is paramount, we will include an emergency light in case of emergencies such as a power cut and a red emergency pull cord with 2 rings so usable even if someone has fallen. To make it dementia friendly it will have pastel colours to distinguish the different items, and a sensor light so users don't have to look for a switch. Clear signage will eliminate any confusion. The module will have anti-slip flooring, tiling along with energy efficient lighting.
