Last year, we signed the lease for the Trans Pride Centre, the only trans and non-binary focused community centre in the country where we provide radical support for community needs. This includes hosting addiction support services, providing help with referrals, and providing clothes and toiletries.
Unfortunately, our two post-pandemic Trans Pride Brighton events have taken a massive hit through unforeseen circumstances, one year with an event-wide card machine failure and then the next with weather warnings, forcing us to cancel the entire park event.
As our annual events are where almost 100% of our fundraising happens to help us continue operating over the next 12 months.
We are now talking about closing the Trans Pride Centre for good in March next year, we can't even commit to covering the bare minimum of costs to hire a centre manager for 3 days a week and it's already closed our weekly drop-in services.
We are launching our winter campaign to raise £27,500 to keep this vital space open for a year.
With that money, we can pay the rent, keep the lights and heating on, and pay for a community centre manager one day a week. All we need is to get through the next year, keep the doors open and have the space to plan our next steps to secure our future.
Only with your help can we reopen the centre for the most vulnerable this winter season for those in need of our support.
