The Bevern Trust

A Sussex disability charity caring for people with complex needs at our home Bevern View in Lewes. We offer more freedom and opportunity to people with profound disabilities and their families, but we must raise at least £12,000 each month to allow vulnerable people to live life in abundance. Through a tailored activities programme, sensory activities and therapies, the people we care for can participate in more community events and play an active role in society without being marginalised.

Founded 1999
