Homes for the retired in East Sussex

The Thomas Scanlan Trust was established in 1979 as a direct result of a bequest made in the will of the late Thomas Arthur Scanlan in which he left the proceeds of the sale of his house in Surrey.

The Trust has gone on to create over 50 homes across East Sussex.

The Trust is managed by 6 Trustees, all volunteers and two part-time staff based at our office in Uckfield.
