In March 2020

When the first Lockdown came in place the numbers of residents needing food and support became enormous, with so many residents on zero-hour contracts unable to claim furlough.

Devonshire West Big Local

Devonshire West Big Local responded to the emergency by stepping in with additional funding for food, take away containers, and to pay for an additional key worker. We continue to fund this amazing project which goes from strength to strength, helping so many residents in our area every day.

Local Residents

Residents can get help from their 2 keyworkers, Maria and Justin, 5 days a week. Legal help is now available in house too, with a weekly slot on Monday afternoons with Eastbourne Citizens Advice Bureau so our residents can have appointments virtually from within Matthew 25.
