Join the Sussex Housing & Care community
Sussex Housing & Care (SHC) is a charitable Housing Association
providing quality, affordable housing and care services for older people
SHC was formed in 1946 by a group of local residents working in senior
positions in health and housing - Major E F Holland, Mr Ronald Simson
and Dr Ashleigh Glegg. The supporters and employees of SHC still work
towards the association's initial aim - to ensure 'in old age there
should be security, and no-one in their latter years should find
themselves stranded, with nowhere to go , and no-one to befriend them.'
From these beginnings, SHC has extended and now offers a range of homes
and care for over 800 residents in a variety of locations in Sussex.
This has been achieved through the combined efforts of generous
benefactors and its committed staff and volunteers over the years.
This charitable status means that SHC relies on voluntary donations and
grants to provide extra welfare services to its residents that they
would otherwise not receive. In addition, shortfalls in funding from
local authorities for residential and nursing care are also met by SHC
through its welfare fund. Your donation will help us continue this
work, and help ensure we can provide the care and support services that
older people in Sussex deserve.
