At Rockinghorse Children's Charity, our aim is to improve the lives of sick children throughout Sussex.
Rockinghorse is a Brighton-based charity which has been supporting children for over 45 years. It was set up in 1967 by Dr Trevor Mann, who recognised there was a real need for additional resources to improve healthcare services for sick children and babies.
We are the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (the Alex) and also support the Trevor Mann Baby Unit (TMBU), where we raise money for life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment, while ensuring that children are treated in an environment that is better suited to their needs.
We believe no matter where they are, children should be allowed to be children.
Working in partnership with the Alex and TMBU, we strive to make services stimulating, cutting edge and accessible for the many babies, children and teenagers who need them.
Rockinghorse is based in Brighton and has a small team of nine staff.
