Adur & Worthing Councils both have a residents' panel that officers and members use to consult with, invite to events and engage with on Council services.

Ideally each panel would have approximately 1,200 resident on it but currently:

  • Viewpoint - Adur's panel - has approximately 650 members
  • Talkback - Worthing's panel - has approximately 800 members

Both Viewpoint and Talkback are online panels. Members receive all correspondence by email so you will need a valid email address to be able to become a member.

If members are invited to take part in a survey they be sent a link to an on-line survey which is received, completed and submitted on-line via our website.

We aim to consult with members no more than three times per year but members may receive invites to other events and engagement activities more than that.

We aim refresh our panel every three to four years and as well as recruiting new members for the panel we also offer the opportunity for the current members to remain on the panel. The residents' names and addresses are randomly selected from the electoral role. If you are not contacted by this method you are still entitled to join either of the panels by completing an application form that is available on this page below.

If you require more information you can e-mail the consultation officer who will endeavour to answer any queries you may have.

If you have any question about joining Talkback or Viewpoint please contact the Consultation Officer.
