Compass Card West Sussex – 1000 registrations!

27 September 2016

It’s almost six months since we launched Compass Card West Sussex and we’re delighted to announce we’ve registered our 1000th card holder. 14 year old Aron Atkins, who lives just outside Chichester, is the lucky 1000th and our Compass Card partners, Hunter’s Lodge Riding Centre, will be treating Aron and his family to a pony ride for the whole family to mark the occasion. Congratulations Aron.

Hunter’s Lodge Riding Centre near Chichester stables 25 horses and ponies and runs one to one sessions, pony days and group lessons in its indoor and outdoor riding school. Run by a team with experience of working with disabled children, young people and adults, Hunters Lodge has been a Compass Card partners since the summer and offers card holders a 10% discount on lessons and activities.

1000 Compass Card holders also means 1000 children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities are now on the ‘disability register’ for West Sussex County Council (called ‘Compass West Sussex’) – and that’s very good news for service planning in the county. The details of all Compass Card holders in West Sussex are entered onto Compass West Sussex by the Compass Team at Amaze. The information is held securely by Amaze under Data Protection legislation and collated and anonymised to help West Sussex County Council to plan services.
