Four Health and Wellbeing Community Hubs announced for Hastings and Bexhill

Four Health and Wellbeing Community Hubs announced for Hastings and BexhillHealthy Hastings and Rother Hubs PartnersPeople in the most deprived communities of Hastings and Bexhill are set to benefit from the establishment of new Health and Wellbeing Community Hubs thanks to funding from NHS Hastings and Rother Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

The hubs will help local people and communities to improve and manage their health and wellbeing by giving them access to information, sign-posting and support in one convenient place. Hubs will also take an active role in the design and sustainability of local health and wellbeing services.

They are the result of extensive partnership work between the CCG, the local voluntary and community sector, Hastings Borough Council, Rother District Council and East Sussex County Council. The development of the hubs is part of ‘Healthy Hastings and Rother’, a scheme that was set up to tackle health inequalities in the area. In turn, this is part of the wider East Sussex Better Together (ESBT) programme.

Awards have been made to local voluntary and community sector organisations to establish hubs in North East Hastings, North West Hastings, Central St Leonards, Central Bexhill and Sidley. For further information please contact:

Work on these exciting projects began in November 2017.
