The Framework Agreement for Supported Living and Family Support Services for Adults with Learning Disabilities and Disabled Children and Young People in West Sussex (SLFSSF) is due to expire on 31st July 2021.

The Council is establishing a New Supported Living Framework to commence 1st August 2021.

The New Supported Living Framework is inclusive of the provision of Personal Support for young people (16+) and adults.
