Lewes District Community Network

The Lewes District Community Network is a cross-sector online networking event. Primarily aimed at voluntary and community groups operating across Lewes District, everyone in the local community is welcome.

The network is an informal meeting space that enables individuals representing voluntary & community sector organisations or groups to network together, share information, build relationships and collaborate, influence service provision and take up opportunities for mutual support and learning.

By coming along to this meeting, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Talk to other groups and organisations active in Lewes District and explore ways of working together
  • Learn from each other and what already works well
  • Design how we can all be more involved in local conversations and plans in the future
