About Us

Home-Start East Sussex believes that every child and parent living in East Sussex should live in a safe and nurturing family where every member enjoys a positive life.

Home-Start East Sussex (HSES) is a small independent charity founded in 1996 and affiliated to Home-Start UK and SafeLives who provide us with quality standards and policies. HSES works towards the increased safety, confidence and independence of disadvantaged families living in the county.

The charity supports local families to build stronger, more resilient relationships through targeted services that encourage clients to make decisions, act for themselves and take back control of their lives. In response to the pandemic we have adapted all our services to ensure that we continue to support those most impacted.


I think that what the volunteers do for people like myself is fantastic. I wish that one day I will be able to repay what you do and become a volunteer myself.
