One stop shop opens in town

A pair of advice agencies have joined forces to try and provide a one-stop shop for anyone with problems.

The Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) and Brighton Housing Trust (BHT) have opened up a share premises in St Leonards Road.

Both groups will now be located in Highlight House and a celebratory launch party was held on Tuesday to mark the new venture.

Both services will continue to provide advice on a range of matters, including housing problems, benefit entitlement and debt support.

Sue Hennell, of BHT Eastbourne, said, “The coordination of the two agencies will provide a better service for our clients and allow them to access a range of advice from one location.”

Mayor of Eastbourne Councillor Mike Thompson was among those to attend Tuesday’s launch and wish the two groups the very best success in the future.
