Charitable Trusts and Foundations

Charitable Trusts and Foundations play a vital role in funding our services and our growth.

 They support our ongoing work and invest in new services and equipment.

Recent work funded by grants and donations include:

  • Our Earthworks allotment project for bereaved men.
  • Education programme helping people with end of life care needs who are homeless.
  • Virtual wellbeing therapies and coffee mornings for patients and carers.
  • New mattresses for our inpatient unit.
  • New syringe drivers used by our nurses to give medication to our patients.
  • Our Compassionate Neighbours Project delivering support to people at home.
  • Work to develop our services for carers.

    Focus on Earthworks

    It’s something to look forward to, I can forget my thoughts and get stuck in

    A grant from Sussex Masonic Charities funded a year’s pilot project offering bereavement support to men working a local allotment.  Friendships and support grew over the course of a year and we are now looking to continue and expand the project on our own allotment to run more groups and help more people.

    It gives me a space to get away from all the difficulties at home, this is a space for me.
