Tackling Poverty.

Reducing poverty and disadvantage in our communities.

Too many people across Sussex can’t afford to meet their basic needs or take part in their communities. Many find themselves on the margins of society, left behind by a lack of services or support. This route reaches grassroots charities and community groups that are tackling poverty and disadvantage.

We are helping people who

  • Are living in economic hardship
  • Are experiencing unemployment and/or homelessness
  • Face barriers because of their disability, ethnic background, immigration status or sexuality.

By supporting organisations that

  • Provide advice and information
  • Help with food and fuel poverty
  • Build social justice and racial equity
  • Support people with housing and homelessness
  • Support people experiencing domestic violence
  • Help to improve living standards
