Your Views on Cybercrime Needed

Written by The Editor on .

Cybercrime

The West Sussex County Council Cybercrime/Online Safety Survey is live.

The Community Safety & Wellbeing Team at the County Council has launched two surveys in order to gather feedback about people’s perceptions and experiences of cybercrime/online safety across West Sussex over the last 12 months. Your response to this survey will help influence how the County Council shape their cybercrime / online safety support work in order to help residents in the future.

You will have 5 weeks in order to complete the survey. The survey will close at midnight on Monday 19th November, 2018.

If you are a West Sussex resident, aged 18 or above and want to make your views heard, follow the link below to complete the Personal Use Cybercrime/Online Safety Survey. The Council need your help to be able to better support their work with the community.

In addition, the Council are also seeking feedback from business managers / owners to help support them. If this applies to you, you are also invited to complete a separate survey to answer questions around business activity.

Walk the Heath this Summer

Written by The Editor on .

Heathland covers just one per cent of the South Downs National Park, mostly separated into ‘islands’ where isolated plants and animals are far more vulnerable to local extinction. Heathland is rarer than rainforest and home to all 12 of our native reptiles and amphibians.

The Heathlands Reunited Project, is a partnership of 11 like-minded organisations, led by the South Downs National Park Authority. The project runs for 5 years from 2016-2021 and covers 41 heathland sites.

One of the project's aims is to re-engage and inspire communities to visit their heathlands, learn more about them and work together to look after them so they can be enjoyed for generations to come.  To that end, they have organised and are publicising a 'Walk the Heath', heathland dog walking week linked with the 'Take The Lead' campaign for responsible dog ownership on the South Downs.  The between 14th and 18th of August.
