We are a small, independent charity that supports disadvantaged children, families and women that live in East Sussex and Brighton & Hove. We currently have two services:
1) volunteer home-visiting for families with preschool children. Volunteers visit once a week to support parents with any issues that may be indirectly or directly impacting on their children's learning & development e.g. parental isolation and mental health, historic domestic abuse.
2) Lotus domestic abuse programme. A 6 week group held in various safe community locations around East Sussex and Brighton & Hove that supports women-victim-survivors who are now safe but need support to recover and move on from their experience.
If you'd like to run, swim, bake (or do anything else to raise some money), click the button below to get started. It's quick and easy to register and by doing so here at Wonderful.org, you can be sure that every penny raised will reach Home-Start East Sussex.
The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
