With effect from 27th March, 2018 Lewes District Citizens Advice will be opening a new office in Newhaven.  The premises at 15 – 19 Chapel Street (opposite the leisure centre) have been extensively renovated thanks to the generosity of Lewes District Council as part of their commitment to the regeneration of the town.

Our new office will be open three days a week, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for drop ins and on other days by appointment; we will also have a form filling service for clients needing help with PIP and ESA forms.  The specialist debt and benefit service which used to be operated from the Hub above Lidl has also moved so clients can have the full range of Citizens Advice help under one roof.

The opening of our new office in Newhaven has meant we have had to make some changes to our opening times across the district.


Newhaven                Tues/Wed/Thurs     10.00am – 15.30pm

Lewes                         Mon/Tues/Fri          9.30am – 15.00pm

Seaford                      Mon/Wed                 9.30am – 15.00pm

Telephone – 03444 111 444

Mon/Tues/Wed/Thurs/Fri                       9.30am – 16.00pm

For more details on locations and outreach contact Jackie Wilkes on 01273 477924, or alternatively contact your local Citizens Advice on 03444 111 444. You can find details of opening times on our website
