BHT works, on the whole, in Brighton and Hove, Eastbourne and Hastings, with some additional services in Wealden and Lewes districts, as well as elsewhere in Sussex.
Our Mission is quite simple: ‘combating homelessness, creating opportunities, promoting change’.
We see it as our role to both challenge the causes of homelessness, poverty and marginalisation and to deal with the consequences.
BHT is a people-led organisation. First and foremost are the 11,430 men and women who used our services in 2011/12.
Our most important assets are our staff. BHT employs over 250 members of staff who bring a rich assortment of skills, expertise and professionalism which is an essential ingredient of turning people’s lives around.
BHT invests in its staff through a comprehensive training programme.
BHT is run by a partnership of senior managers and the Board of Management. The Board sets overall strategic direction for the organisation and approves policies while the Executive Management Team, led by the Chief Executive, is responsible for the day to day running of the organisation and for advising the Board on the future direction of BHT.
