Ambition 6: Resources

Lead a well-resourced, passionate, dedicated, and supported team of experts working for the best care of children and young people across Sussex.

We will achieve this by:

  • Investing in training our team of experts, to help them deliver the ambitions set out in our strategic plan.
  • Enabling the team gain new skills to improve how we work together and improve their own physical and mental health and wellbeing.
  • Expanding our volunteering programme across the entire charity to help us increase the amount of work we can do and help us expand the skills, experience and knowledge we have access to.
  • Developing our work experience programme to support young people to be able to work within our charity, use their skills and gain valuable experience.
  • Ensure the charity has the resources it needs to support children and young people across Sussex for the next 55 years.


Rockinghorse work experience placement

“I did a week’s work experience with Rockinghorse and worked with different members of the team to help me really understand how a small local charity works. I realised there were lots of different aspects to how a charity works and that Rockinghorse do so many different things for children.”

“It’s been really helpful to have been given different projects to work on and the research skills I have learnt will be really helpful when I go back to school in September. The team also said how useful it was having a younger person join the team to get my perspective on things like social media and reaching a younger audience.”
