Lewes and the Havens Community Network

 Registration is closed for this event
Mental health issues are increasingly in the public consciousness and 1 in 4 of the population experience mental ill health at some point in their life. However, the impact of poor mental health is often unseen, and the stigma attached means the subject is sometimes avoided. During this meeting we will hear from local services aimed at young people and working age adults to explore if there are ways in which local communities can increase mutual well-being.

The Network meetings are cross-sector events for everyone in the local community organised in partnership by 3VA and the ESCC Locality Link Workers. They are informal meetings that enable individuals that represent organisations, or groups from all sectors across Lewes & the Havens to network together, share information, build relationships and collaboration, influence service provision and provide opportunities for mutual support and learning.

By coming along to this Network, you can:

  • Hear the personal story and song from a young mental health service user.
  • Discover more about i-Rock, the new mental health service for 14-25-year olds.
  • Receive a copy of the new mental health map.
  • Learn about services offered by others working in the community and explore potential ways of working together to improve community mental health at local levels.
  • Talk to other groups and organisations active in the Lewes & the Havens area.
  • Enjoy a light buffet supper.

There will be opportunities to tell other participants about things happening in your organisation and you are welcome to bring along literature about your group to give to other people to take away.

Booking your place:

Attending the Network is completely free, but there is limited space in the venue. Demand for places is likely to be high, so we may have to limit places to one per organisation. To be sure of your place, please book by 5pm on Friday 13th September.

Pre-booking is essential, but easy! To secure your place please book online here.

Getting there:

There is on-site parking next to the Café. If you would like to come by bus, Brighton & Hove buses numbers 12, 12a, 12x and 14 run in both directions along the coast between Eastbourne and Brighton. The nearest stop to the Café is Slindon Avenue (opposite the post office if you’re travelling from the Newhaven/Eastbourne direction and next to Peacehaven Evangelical Free Church if you are coming from Brighton).

The Café is then an approximately ten-minute walk up Piddinghoe Avenue, which will bring you to the entrance of the Centenary Park with the Café immediately ahead of you.
