About Us

Rotherfield St Martin
 
is a community charity with a Christian ethos that provides on-going social support, care and well being for older people. We aim to ensure that older people in our community are active and fully supported to live the lives they want to live.

From humble beginnings we are now well established and have  a permanent base, the RSM, which to deliver our services and care from.  We are grateful for the support we have received by way of grants from various organisations, including the Parish Council, St Denys' Church, The Big Lottery, Sussex Community Foundation, the Tudor Trust and donations from local groups and individuals.

As from September 2013 we will have a membership of over 357, a band of 140 volunteers, a board of 6 trustees and a management committee of 9.  We have links with other voluntary groups and statutory bodies.
