Sign the petition and campaign to save the Isabel Blackman centre from being sold off to a private buyer
Why is this important?
We need your support to save this vital community asset. Age UK East Sussex have been working with the Hastings & St Leonards Seniors Forum, Hastings Voluntary Action, Sussex Community Development Association and Hastings Old Town Residents Association to examine a future for the Isabel Blackman Centre which was closed in March 2019.
In partnership, we have launched a petition asking East Sussex County Council to engage with the voluntary sector about the building’s future or, if the building is sold, “ring-fence” the capital receipt to benefit older people in Hastings.
The Isabel Blackman Centre has been a vital community asset for older people in Hastings for many years. It needs to be sold off to the voluntary sector and reopened as a community hub and main resource for local older people.
