There has been a Home-Start presence in East Sussex since 1988. In 2014 the two schemes in the county (Home-Start South Downs in the west and Home-Start Hastings & Rother in the east) merged to become Home-Start East Sussex.In 2015/16 Home-Start East Sussex supported 266 families with the help of 77 volunteers.
