Housing Support

Hide on full page view?: 

Homelessness is one of the biggest issues facing our society, with thousands of people living on the streets and in temporary accommodation across Sussex. 

To help people secure and keep safe, affordable housing and avert crisis, we provide a range of housing and homelessness prevention support across East Sussex, West Sussex and Brighton & Hove.

As well as focussing on your immediate housing need, we also address other issues that are putting the security and stability of your housing at risk, for example, poverty, mental health challenges and domestic abuse. 

All our services are free and available for people aged 18 and over (some can also be accessed by young people aged 16 and over). Please note: eligibility and access to our services varies depending on how support has been commissioned. More information is available in the sections below.

If you would like to get in touch with us in regards to forming new partnerships or for business development, please contact Rah Bray (Head of Service for our Housing Support) by email at rah.bray@southdown.org.
