About Family Support Work
Family Support Work have been working in the Sussex area since 1890 so will soon be celebrating 125 years supporting families. They work intensively with families through our many activities including home visits, support groups, one-to-one meetings, drop-ins as well as supported breaks with their community workers.
Their community based work is focussed mainly on coastal and rural areas where high levels of multiple deprivation exist. Common issues are:
- Poor quality housing
- Mental health problems
- Long standing life limiting illness or disability
- Low income
- Abuse in the home
- Inability to afford food / clothing
