The Future of the Isabel Blackman Centre in Hastings Old Town

The Future of the Isabel Blackman Centre in Hastings Old Town

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.

You can view and sign the petition here:-

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.
