Hft Sussex Filfilling Lives
Hft Sussex is a charity supporting more than 80 people with learning disabilities in and around your local area. We're here to help people to live life on their own terms. The practical help, support and encouragement we offer gives them a chance to find a more enjoyment, comfort and satisfaction in life. It can range from helping someone go on holiday for the first time, to providing employment experience at Sussex Orchards - our unique apple juicing facility - to supporting someone to live independently in their own home. Our support is highly personalised but is always about helping people to have the kind of life we might want for ourselves, or for our loved ones. This is what we do. And this is why we need you.
Most people like to enjoy an active and varied social life. But people with learning disabilities can become isolated. Something that we might take for granted, like meeting friends in the pub or seeing live music, can be almost impossible for some of the people we support.
Hft Sussex helps people to make social plans of their own. And we work hard to find creative ways to help combat isolation and enable people to enjoy new experiences and activities. Like Core Fest, a unique family-friendly music festival for the local community, set in our beautiful orchards and woodland. Our first festival last year was a huge success; and this year, we have big plans for the event!
"It was great seeing all the bands and having so many local people come here and watch them with us. It was like a dream come true. I've always wanted to go to a festival but I never thought that I would actually do it!"
But our creative solutions cost money. And that's where you come in. By coming along and enjoying one of our events or buying our apple juice, you are helping us raise the funds we need to continue to go the extra mile. With your support, we can do even more to help people with learning disabilities build their confidence, try something new and have fun.
We build holidays around you. Not us. And with over 175 parcs in wonderful locations throughout Europe, we're sure we've got the perfect place for you.
Wherever your're headed, you'll find the possibilities are endless! So why not make the most of our flexible travel dates and find the perfect holiday for your family?
What's more, you can save £££!
Now that we are in winter everyone is looking for things to do with the kids to enjoy the festive season. Here we have some great ideas, and they don't all involve being cooped up indoors! Get out and enjoy the world around you - you can always return home afterwards for a hot chocolate and a snuggle!
