Sussex Police donates £500 to Bognor Housing Trust Sussex Police has donated £500 to help support the work of the Bognor Housing Trust.
Bognor Housing Trust was founded in 1984 and has since developed to now own and manage three supported housing projects for single homeless people in Bognor Regis, West Sussex.
Its overall objectives are to assist clients to strengthen and enhance their self-esteem and to provide access and support to assist clients to engage in mainstream social and economic activity.
The Trust has received a £500 donation from the Police Property Act Fund to assist clients moving on, with items such as furniture, utensils and appliances. This will help ensure that their move is sustainable and they’re able to build on the skills they’ve learnt while at the Trust.

Sussex Police apologises following inquest on death of Susan Nicholson Susan was murdered by her partner Robert Trigg, in Worthing in April 2011. He was sentenced to life imprisonment for her murder in July 2017, and was also sentenced for the manslaughter of a previous partner, Caroline Devlin, in March 2006.
Today, Monday 5 July, a jury at Crawley Coroners Court concluded that police prematurely closed an investigation into Caroline Devlin's death, and this may have contributed to Susan’s death. They also found that the force should have known about the real and immediate risk to Susan and that, by not taking reasonable action, this had caused or contributed to her death.
Following the inquest, Assistant Chief Constable Fiona Macpherson said: “Susan’s family and friends have waited a long time to hear all the facts surrounding her death and our thoughts remain with them, and with the family of Caroline, at this difficult time.
