Simon Dowe, Chief Executive of The Sussex Beacon, said: “Volunteers are a vital part of The Sussex Beacon, we simply couldn’t function effectively without them. We’re now looking for more people to join our enthusiastic, dedicated team. A little of your time could make a huge difference to local people living with HIV, so if you’re interested, please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.”

The Sussex Beacon recently received a ‘certificate of recognition’ award from Skills Training UK, an organisation that supports disadvantaged young people to develop skills, qualifications and gain work experience with local employers.  A number of young people from the Skills Training UK programme have worked as volunteers in The Sussex Beacon’s shops.

All volunteers at The Sussex Beacon are given training relevant to their role, on-going support and their expenses are paid. As well as helping others, volunteering often helps those doing it to develop transferable skills and can sometimes lead to other employment opportunities.
