            Lewes District Citizens Advice

            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 main bureaux are in Lewes and Seaford and we also have outreach locations in Newhaven and Peacehaven.  Our offices are 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.

          We need to fix Universal Credit 

          Why Universal Credit matters

          By 2022, 7 million families in the UK will be on Universal Credit. Over half of those will be in work.

          The aim – to simplify our benefits system – is right. But Universal Credit is already failing many people. It is forcing people into debt and leaving them without the means to make ends meet.

        • 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.

          There are several ways you can make a donation.
