About 2020 Vision

What is 2020 Vision?

West Sussex 2020 Vision is the cross-agency future vision and strategy for domestic and sexual violence services across West Sussex. At a time when current and future financial constraints are so tight the need for more effective and efficient ways of working together to provide domestic and sexual violence services is paramount. It is essential that all partners and stakeholders share in the development of a long term vision and strategy for domestic and sexual violence services.

The West Sussex 2020 Vision will:

Increase the safety and recovery of victims and their children.
Increase the quality and availability of services
Increase the return on investment
Provide more options for services users
Provide services that meet the needs of victims, children and perpetrators

This project is sponsored by The West Sussex Domestic/Sexual Violence Strategic Board (WSDSVB).
