Homelessness report

The right to housing is recognised as a basic human right. However, the reasons why people are homeless or become homeless are complex and often connected with many other challenges they may face.  Access to housing and services  is a particular problem in Sussex where affordable accommodation is scarce and living rurally can mean being miles away from shops and other support services. The county is ranked 8th worst out of 47 English sub-regions by these measures. Since 2006, we’ve given a range of grants to charities and community groups in Sussex, working to support people who for a variey of reasons are homeless or in danger of becoming so or are having trouble accessing safe, secure and appropriate housing.

 Also here is a short film featuring Sussex Emmaus, another of the charities we have funded that supports homeless people to move on with their lives.
