Linking Lives Eastbourne is a young and exciting project addressing the huge issue of isolation and loneliness in Eastbourne and the surrounding area. It’s a Christian-based charity and seeks to work closely in partnership with affiliate local churches.  Our patron is the Right Revd Richard Jackson, Bishop of Lewes.  In November 2016 the first wave of volunteers completed their inaugural training, required to befriend people on a one-to-one basis. LLE is part of a national initiative (Linking Lives UK).
