There are a variety of ways in which you and your company can get involved with supporting Off The Fence to make a positive impact in our local community

With homelessness in Brighton & Hove on the rise and cuts to public services affecting the most vulnerable across the city, we urgently need to scale up our work and pilot new approaches to reach more people - but we can't do it without the support of companies and local businesses. 

By partnering with Off The Fence, your company can join forces with a long-established charity that's making a real difference to the lives of people right on your doorstep- those without homes and wrestling with addiction, vulnerable women facing periods of crisis and young people in local schools struggling with issues of mental health, home life and life in education. We work with businesses to forge inspiring, mutually beneficial partnerships that do much more than just raise money. 

We have a number of annual events such as our Woolly Hat Day, the Off The Fence annual sponsored Sleep Out and our sponsored Night Walk, as well as one off fundraising functions and challenge events like the Heroes Run and Clothes Swaps.

By supporting Off The Fence, your company will be contributing towards effective, long-term solutions to our services.
