The Council continues to work in partnership to promote the social, environmental and economic well being of its tenants.
We have developed good working links with Job Centre Plus to enable people to access their services if they are unemployed or about to be made redundant. To find out more about their services which are vast, visit the jobseekers website (external link).
The Council were part of a successful East Sussex bid to Government to help unemployed local people gain work experience. For more detail please read our Future Jobs Funds briefing note (pdf).
We have also developed a working relationship with a local charity called NewCEP you help unemployed people back into employment, training and/or volunteering. They have a local office at Hailsham and Uckfield and will soon be providing an outreach service from Crowborough on the first Tuesday of every month at the CAB offices. To contact them to find out more about how they can help you call 01273 516347.
