The JPK Project are delighted to announce the support of the Duke of Devonshire and were thrilled to receive a £5,000 donation from the Duke of Devonshire’s Charitable Trust.
The donation will assist the completion of one of the first 3-bed apartments within the Supported Living Centre at the JPK Project. These will provide much-needed accommodation for people with a learning disability currently living in Eastbourne and the surrounding area.

Jill commented, “We are honoured to receive the Duke’s support and this donation will certainly make a difference in our ability to commence this important residential provision at the JPK Project. We are now contacting grant making trusts who have shown an interest but firstly wished us to have some further progress. I believe this will be the ‘stepping stone’ to future development.
“We very much look forward to welcoming the Duke when he next visits Eastbourne and extend our sincere gratitude.”
The Duke has been kept appraised of the progress to commission the Community Training Centre at the JPK Project via Tom Richardson, the Duke’s Eastbourne Estate Manager.
