Can you help to support care leavers in Sussex?


Find out what you can do to help care leavers in East and West Sussex.

How we can help?

We aim to give one-off grants to Sussex care leavers which will help them to transform their lives.
It could be: a suit for a job interview; a deposit for a first flat; some funds towards driving lessons; or a laptop for a college course. Care leavers can apply for funding of up to £1,500, explaining how it will help them reach their aspirations.

How we you help?

We are looking to partner with local businesses who may be able to support us in our work helping care leavers in the city. Could you offer discounted driving lessons? Do you have a small business that could take on an apprentice? Would you consider supporting Beyond as your chosen charity for the year? Please get in touch if you think you can help or would like to work with us.
