GRANTS of up to £1,000 from this fund are available to volunteer led LGBT+ projects, with no paid staff, in Sussex.
Surdi is a not for profit group based in Brighton & Hove, who work to encourage hearing culture to accept deaf culture, avoid isolation, avoid social stigma and to create opportunities for deaf and hard of hearing people.
The project for which a grant of £1,000 has been approved is for the Sussex Deaf LGBT+ Project.
The grant will allow for:
♦ Hire of a private space in Brighton for the group to meet once a month for a year.
♦ Improvement of the website to include more information about the LGBT group
♦ Printing leaflets to raise awareness about the group
♦ A banner to promote and raise awareness of the group at social events
Darren Jensen from the Sussex Deaf LGBT group said: “We really appreciate the quick response from The Brighton Rainbow Fund. This grant will allow us to start sorting our plans”
The Brighton Rainbow Fund Community Grassroots Fund is open 365 days of the year.
