Why we need your help
The Sussex Beacon is facing the prospect of closing services, including its ten bed inpatient unit, following a reduction in the funding it receives from the NHS.
We provide specialist support and care for people living with HIV through both inpatient and outpatient services. We help hundreds of people living with HIV in Sussex each year and was rated ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission in September 2016.
Changes to local commissioning arrangements have led to a reduction in statutory funding. We have already lost funding and further cuts seem likely in the future. We will endeavour to save The Sussex Beacon, but we can’t do it alone. Below are just a few ways that you can get involved and help #SaveTheSussexBeacon.
