Home-Start East Sussex

This charity has been providing support to disadvantaged and vulnerable families for over 20 years from its base in Newhaven. It delivers two main services: a volunteer home visiting services; and a domestic violence service.

In the June 2019 Trustee meeting, the Foundation has offered a grant towards the costs of offering support to women affected by domestic violence. Home-Start East Sussex runs a number of courses in various towns across the area, and is developing the new Lotus programme currently. Outcomes of the work include better understanding of domestic abuse, increased feelings of self-esteem, empowerment and self-confidence, and improved safety. The grant is £3,000 per annum over two years.
