We are a Sussex Disability Charity caring for profoundly disabled people at our care home Bevern View in Barcombe near Lewes. As a charity we need to raise at least £12,000 every month to provide loving care for people with the most complex needs. With your support we can provide more freedom and opportunity for people in East Sussex and their families.
"Disabled people can feel the music thanks to Sussex Freemasons"
Disabled people in Sussex can have the same freedoms as everyone else to attend concerts and events thanks to two new mobile changing facilities funded from a £13,794 grant to the Bevern Trust charity from Sussex Freemasons.
The new MigLoo mobile changing facilities will allow at least 30 people with profound disabilities to attend community events, festivals and outdoor activities. Attending venues with limited facilities previously meant that changing or going to the toilet for people with complex needs was impossible and that they could not stay for long or even attend at all.
For people with profound disabilities, using large motorised wheelchairs, even 'disabled toilet' facilities can prove challenging, might be dirty or not even accessible at all. The ‘Migloo Festival’ provides a fully portable, temporary hoisted Changing Place that utilizes the innovative MigLoo hoisting system. The unit can easily be erected to provide those with profound disabilities and the need for hoisting, the privacy to use a toilet or freshen up and enjoy the rest of their day.
The grant from Sussex Freemasons comes through the Masonic Charitable Foundation, which is funded by Freemasons, their families and friends, from across England and Wales.
