Eastbourne Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) and BHT Sussex Eastbourne Advice have organised an event to celebrate the co-location of their teams and the provision of a ‘one stop shop’ for people seeking advice in Eastbourne.
Eastbourne Mayor, Councillor Mike Thompson, Councillor Margaret Bannister, BHT Chief Executive Andy Winter and the CAB Board of Trustees all attended the event on the 30th October to officially welcome BHT to Highlight House and to celebrate the joining of the two services.
The two advice services will be based at Highlight House, St Leonards Road, Eastbourne where they will provide advice on general matters and specialist advice on welfare benefits, housing, debt and employment as well as advice for those who have served in the armed forces and benefit advice for those affected by cancer.
An accommodation service providing training and support for those looking to find accommodation in the private rented sector is also available.
The event was arranged to officially celebrate the joining of our services. The co-location of the two agencies will provide a better service for our clients and allow them to access a range of advice from one location.
The new “one-stop-shop” approach will help our clients to receive a full and comprehensive service.
Sue Hennell, BHT Eastbourne Advice manager
Our two organisations make an ideal fit, so it makes good sense for both agencies to be located together. Both the BHT Eastbourne Advice and Eastbourne Citizens Advice telephone numbers will remain the same.
