2014 Annual Review
In real life, it’s a huge fold-out map of Sussex on one side, featuring some of the groups we’ve funded during 2013-14 and, on the other side, lots more information about what we’ve been up to and what we’re planning for the coming year. Because of the way it’s made, it might not be too easy to print out. If you’d like a paper copy, email our Communications Manager here and we’ll put one in the post.

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.
