On the move …

After over 20 years at 17 Gildredge Road, we are moving. We will be closed at Gildredge Road 24th-28th June as we pack up and move. From 2nd July our main office will be at 6 Saffrons Road, Eastbourne BN21 1DG (round the corner from the Eastbourne Town Hall).

Our telephone number remains the same: 01323 431289

Our reception email remains the same: reception@people-matter.org.uk

We will continue to run the same range of services (although there may be minor disruption while we settle in to our new premises). We look forward to continuing to support jobseekers with all aspects of job searching, training and career development from our new home.
