A modern customer contact centre delivering services for the council, police and housing association has been officially opened.

Eastbourne Borough Council, Sussex Police and Eastbourne Homes have joined forces to create the contact centre at 1 Grove Road.

Representatives from the three organisations came together for the opening ceremony. They made speeches at the event.

Councillor Tutt said, “It’s great to be working so closely with our partners Sussex Police and Eastbourne Homes.

“We are all subject to financial challenges and this is an excellent example of how partnership working allows us to save money while protecting frontline services.”

Supt Di Roskilly said, “The new facilities provide a much improved environment and experience for people using our services and by being able to work so closely with our colleagues in Eastbourne Borough Council and Eastbourne Homes we can ensure we are delivering the best possible service to the public.”

Roger Eastwood, chairman of Eastbourne Homes, added, “It makes sense to have one place that people in Eastbourne can go to for assistance and Eastbourne Homes are pleased to be part of this innovative, new contact centre where we can work closely with other local agencies to help meet the needs of our customers.”
