Many people in Mid Sussex have kindly stepped forward to offer support to people coming into our communities. We can help you with advice about how to set up a support group, what you might need to consider, and how to operate safely.
Our Community Development Coordinators are here to help you. They can chat to you on the phone, by email and video call or meet up with you in person. Find your local area Coordinator.
