Seaview offers an open access wellbeing centre and linked services particularly focussed on the needs of those who are homeless or insecurely housed in Hastings and St Leonards. Many of the people using Seaview’s support services face an array of challenges including rough sleeping, drug and alcohol addictions, mental health issues, long term physical health conditions, loneliness, unemployment, poverty and social isolation. Seaview provides a place where people can reconnect with others and with their own personal goals.

Seaview is incredibly proud to be one of 8 national winners of a GSK/Kings Fund Impact Award 2018. The awards are made to voluntary sector organisations who have led an exceptionally positive impact on the Health and Wellbeing of the communities they serve. Below is a short film which demonstrates the impact of Seaview in our local community.

As highlighted in the film, Seaview’s range of services include:

Open access wellbeing centre

We provide a warm and welcoming building where people can find help, comfort, friendship and inspiration. We offer laundry, washing facilities as well as access to activities such as gym, arts choir, healthy hot meals and friendship.

Last year funds raised by those who slept the Big Sleep, provided funding for:

  • Rough Sleepers Outreach Service – enabling Seaview to reach out and make contact with more rough sleepers on the street in the early hours on the street, verifying and checking on the welfare of rough sleepers and encouraging individuals to take the first steps in finding a home.
  • Seaview Accommodation Support Service (SASS) – supporting former entrenched rough sleepers in their homes and in doing so helping to stop the revolving door of homelessness.
  • Wellbeing Centre – providing further support to those who use our Wellbeing Centre Services throughout the year.
