Lewes East Sussex
Lewes District Citizens Advice is an independent charity providing free, confidential and impartial advice to anyone living or working within the Lewes District area.
We value diversity, promote equality and challenge discrimination.
We help people to resolve their problems by providing information and advice on a wide range of topics including debt, benefits, employment, consumer, relationships and housing. We are also involved in campaigning, both locally and nationally to make sure that local people have their voices heard so that collectively we can influence policy makers and affect change.
Our 3 main offices are in Lewes, Newhaven and Seaford and we also have outreach locations in Peacehaven and Telscombe. Each of our offices is staffed by a team of committed and highly trained workers most of whom are volunteers. Without the support of our staff and the continued generosity of our funders we would not be able to offer our vital service.
Please donate – we need your help!
As an independent charity Lewes District Citizens Advice relies on grants and donations in order to keep providing our services free of charge. The demand for our help is greater than ever and the grants we receive don’t cover all our expenses. We are therefore very grateful for any additional donations no matter how small.
This year's AGM will be on Thursday 11th November
2pm at Denton Island bowls club
The highlight of the AGM is that Jackie has arranged Miles Jenner to be the speaker. Miles is the current High Sheriff of East Sussex but for most people he is better known as the head brewer at Harveys.
Please add the date to your diaries. Note that parking is free and available on site.
The club is also an easy 7 minute walk from Newhaven Town station.
