To mark the start of this year’s campaign, which runs from November 15 to 21, the council and its partners will be joining over 4,000 community groups across the UK to increase the understanding of the ways in which alcohol can affect us and our relationships with those around us.
People who struggle to keep their homes warm can get support and advice through the council’s warm home check service.
Bookstart baby packs are usually gifted to new parents by their health visitor at the six-week post birth check-up.
The pandemic has meant that some health checks have been carried out remotely and as a result parents may not have received their pack. The free packs, which are available to babies under 12 months old, can be collected from all East Sussex libraries.
From November 1, 2021 Clarion will provide specialist support in 47 units of safe accommodation across the county for women experiencing domestic abuse and violence, and their children. Within a year of the contract starting, this provision will increase to 56 units to include anybody experiencing domestic abuse.
