Our mission is to support people to live well

We are a robust and successful organisation supporting around 6,000 people a year (approximately 540 of whom are tenants), employing 850 staff and with a turnover of £27.5 million.

What we do

We deliver specialist, person-centred support across Sussex:

  • 24-hour care & support
  • Mental and physical wellbeing
  • Peer support
  • Homelessness
  • Learning & employment
  • Social landlord

Our clients and tenants have mental health difficulties or learning disabilities or are people who are or have been homeless. A smaller number have addiction issues or sensory or physical disabilities. All are offered the support they need to live their life well.

Southdown has grown to become one of the largest voluntary sector employers in Sussex and has an excellent reputation for staff training and development.

Everything we do is driven by our core values, which are adopted and enacted day in, day out in all our services.

Our income sources

  • Commissioned contracts
  • Rent and service charge income
  • Commissioned packages of support for individual clients

As a not-for-profit organisation, we reinvest any surpluses into service delivery and development.
