Last year across all our services BHT Sussex supported 10,059 people, more than ever before.
Through First Base, our Advice centres and support services, we helped to prevent 2,701 households from becoming homeless.
Sadly, soaring rents and living costs are pushing more and more people into homelessness, and demand for services like First Base continues to rise.
Please support our Christmas Appeal and donate what you can, a little really can go a long way. Every donation to this appeal will go to First Base Day Centre.
First Base recognised that I had a lot of different support needs and that it was hard for me to get help from other services. They saw my strengths and I built a good relationship with the staff.
They worked with lots of different services to make sure I got the help I needed, and they prevented me from ending up back on the streets.
