Our sincere and grateful thanks are extended to the many people who, over the years, have provided their time, expertise, resources and funding support. Without all of you, we would not be where we are today!

We are commited to building an environment of inclusion and acceptance that values diversity across all social areas. In order that we may maintain our operational standards and continue with our various programmes, Breaking Down Barriers would actively welcome any additional sponsorship to help further our cause.

Flexibility, creativity, visibility and outcomes which benefit our shared community are just some of the advantages of partnering with a local company.

If you are able to help, your generosity will make a difference in our community by allowing the continuation of this important work. We will ensure your assistance is recognised and your organisation’s corporate social responsibility acknowledged, by inclusion on this page together with a link to your organisation’s website, if you so wish.

Thank you.

Breaking Down Barriers has been awarded a grant from the Police & Crime Commissioner’s Safer in Sussex Community Fund.

Katy Bourne the Police & Crime Commissioner joined Barbara Rowe on Monday 29th June to present the grant award and explain how the funding will help improve community safety in Sussex.

Commenting on the funding award Barbara Rowe said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this grant from the Safer in Sussex Community Fund, which will help to fund a mentoring program that will enable the young people taking part to develop their self-esteem and resilience to their full potential. Through this programme they will enhance their life chances and opportunities by building confidence and raising aspirations helping to improve their quality of life.”

Commending breaking Down Barriers on its successful bid Mrs Bourne said: “The Sussex Adolescent Mentoring Service (SAMS) is a great example of an innovative local project that aims to make our community safer.”

Since the Community Fund launched in December 2013 over 100 projects have been supported and over £500,000 made available to local crime reduction and community safety initiatives. “I am delighted with the response the Fund has received, which tells me local organisations and community groups care about – and are committed to – helping keep Sussex safe.”

“I look forward to visiting the team at Breaking Down Barriers and following the progress of their project over the coming months.”
