FOCUS on Charity: Off the Fence

From our FOCUS March


Beer Harris Memorial Trust has donated money to the amazing charity, Off the Fence. So here’s a sneak peak into the two programmes that have started to be funded from this money:

The Antifreeze Homeless Project
“Brighton and Hove has seen a 155% increase between January and September 2023 (Brighton & Hove City Council, 2023) in individuals sleeping rough. Consequently, the demand for Antifreeze’s support services has grown. Our Day Centre equipped us with the capability to offer lifesaving services including showers, laundry and healthcare provision to 385 guests in 2023.

The Gateway Women’s Day Centre and Outreach
“Since re-opening our day centre in December 2022, the Gateway building has been a hub from which women in our local community can receive wrap-around care from our fully-trained Gateway team. The team provided 1-to-1 support, group therapy sessions, group skill-based activities, legal and financial advice and holiday celebrations to 130 clients this past year.
