The Sussex Beacon provides specialist care and support for men, women and families living with HIV. Their Inpatient and Health and Wellbeing services work together to improve peoples’ health, promote independent living and challenge stigma. One of the Sussex Beacon’s most exciting new projects is the Peer Support Programme, which trains and supports people living with HIV to become qualified volunteer peer mentors and to support and advocate for, other people living with HIV.
The Sussex Beacon raise funding for their services in a variety of ways, including charity shops, Trusts, the Vitality Brighton Half Marathon and of course the fantastic support they receive from community fundraising. Next up is their spectacular Halloween Fundraising Ball featuring Duncan James from Blue.
Trust Fundraiser Lisa Marshall said: “Over the years, The Sussex Beacon has received fantastic support from The Rainbow Fund, most recently by funding our Occupational Therapy project. We wish the Rainbow Fund every success with fundraising over the Brighton Pride festival and commend them on their excellent work supporting the local LGBT/HIV community”.
