Social Day Service is now run by the Friends
The Friends started by paying the previous providers, East Sussex Healthcare Trust, to carry on for a few months. Meanwhile, the committee spoke to several other organisations which might have carried on the service if we paid them. However, there was no clear ideal provider so the Friends decided to recruit a manager, rent the day centre from ESHT on Mondays and Fridays and do it our- selves.
There was a lot of work to do and it has meant the Friends getting a lot of processes and policies in order, but it has been worth it.
