Thousands of people across Sussex have enjoyed a better life thanks to a small team of dedicated pioneers who developed the Worthing Council of Social Service (today known as Guild Care) in order to create a kinder, more caring society back in 1933.

The founding members aims were to persuade local people to pledge money for those in need. This means that before the ‘welfare state’ Worthing was leading the way with free milk, free dental treatment for adolescents, grants and loans to those facing financial hardship, even footwear for those on low incomes.

From these humble beginnings 80 years ago we are now one of the largest employers in Worthing with over 600 staff and 200 volunteers.
