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 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).


Linking Lives Eastbourne is now seeking expressions of interest in the two part-time posts of Coordinator and Development Worker to significantly grow the work through promotion, recruiting, training and supporting volunteer befrienders who visit people weekly either at home or for short trips out.

Interested in either job? Here are the details:
