Ambition 2: Engagement

Ensure that every donor, supporter, partner, stakeholder and beneficiary of Rockinghorse Children’s Charity feels part of the charity and our community.

We will achieve this by:

  • Expand our engagement with people, companies and organisations working for and with children and young people across Sussex.
  • Expand our youth engagement programme to involve children and young people in every aspect of our work.
  • Expand our use of digital to bring people closer to our work and sharing the stories of the young people we support.
  • Forge closer relationships with the health care professionals working with children so that we can support more families.
  • Expanding the range of ways people can engage with the charity and support our work.

Andy Fountain

Long term Rockinghorse supporter

“I’ve been fundraising for Rockinghorse since my son Ed was born in 1994. He needed surgery when he was only nine hours old and continued to need support from the hospital for the next 19 years of his life.”

“We were so lucky to have the Alex and all the wonderful support they provided to Ed over the years.”

“Having a sick child can be difficult for the whole family but knowing that Ed was receiving such great treatment from such a dedicated team made all the difference and I wanted to make sure that continued for other families who found themselves in a similar position.”

“Rockinghorse is a wonderful charity who support so many children. Over the years they have really supported me with the challenges I have set myself and it’s felt like the whole team really care about the fundraising I do for them.”
