A surprising number of people in Eastbourne are homeless. These include street homeless / rough sleepers, people in B&B accommodation and ‘hotels’ (often with no kitchen facilities and not allowed to stay in the rooms during the day). Others are ‘sofa surfing’ with friends and relatives. Whilst there are a number of projects in the town providing services for homeless people during the day there is a significant need for appropriate housing along with the friendship and support offered through Hope into Action.
We are currently refurbishing our first house to be ready to open in May. We would welcome offers from investors wanting to make a difference in Eastbourne as we look to opening a second house this year.
