The Housing Needs and Strategy Division operates a LDC run scheme for applicants where the council has accepted a full duty to assist. "Homelink" is a second scheme run by the Lewes District Churches where LDC has no duty to provide accommodation but only to provide advice and assistance. Applicants must be over 25 and likely to succeed in the private sector.
The Southern Private Landlords Association together with LDC arrange a private landlords forum every 6 months. Meetings are held alternatively in Lewes and Newhaven. Information is sent out to all landlords via the Housing Benefit system as well as SLPA newsletter and website www.spla.co.uk
