Charity Partnerships

Charity Programme:

Network Xpress’ works with different charities to provide a framework to build awareness of local organisations across Sussex and the South.

Net XP is all about raising business profiles, both online and off, so by supporting these charities, we hope to help them gain a similar level of visibility.
We have chosen a couple of worthwhile charities for each expo since we started in 2015, but in 2019 and moving ahead for the future we will only support one charity partner exclusively for each event, we're not in a position to support as many charities as we have, which has totalled more than 30.

A few of the charities we have supported since 2015 has included:

-    Golden Lion Children's Trust
The Golden Lion Children’s Trust is a charity dedicated to providing hope, help and happiness to children with special needs and disadvantaged young people. The Trust maintains its links with Gatwick Airport, where the roots of the Trust began, but can reach out to a much wider field thanks to the many supporters and volunteers we have.

-    Kangaroos
Kangaroos is a Haywards Heath based charity, established in 1994, designed to support children and young adults with learning disabilities and complex medical needs with the opportunity to participate in enjoyable, entertaining and inclusive clubs and trips. Committed staff, volunteers, trustees and supporters in and around Mid Sussex aspire to enrich the lives of these children and young adults and their families, ensuring their differences don’t restrict them. Network Xpress chose this charity for its individual focus, and supportive attitudes.

-    CHEC
CHEC aims to offer a professional working environment to young adults with physical disabilities that may have experienced problems gaining access to employment. The chance to develop a meaningful career, working as part of a team, is a vital part of life that many of us take for granted and CHEC recognises this. They aim to provide work opportunities to fill this void, thus supporting the intrinsic benefits that work can bring, such as improved self-esteem, personal development and social interaction.

-    Chestnut Tree House
Chestnut Tree House is a haven for families with life-limited children across Sussex, offering vital psychological and bereavement support, end of life and short break care and other care options for those who need it. They strive to offer the best quality of life for everyone involved to make their time comfortable and supported. Families are not charged to stay there, and less than 7p in every pound, that makes up the £3.5m cost of running the hospice each year, is funded by the government, meaning they rely heavily on the support of the people of Sussex.

-    St Wilfrid’s Hospice
St Wilfrid’s hospice in Chichester provides care and support for those living with a terminal illness and for their family and friends alike. Their vision and purpose is to achieve high quality specialist palliative and end of life care within the community, but their spending goes further than just medical equipment, drugs and nurse wages. Running a hospice requires more than that, whether it is helping to keep the buildings running with gas and electric, or paying for a nurse to be a core form of support in the last hours of a patient’s life.

-    The Disabilities Trust
The Disabilities Trust, founded 30 years ago in Burgess Hill, is a charity offering support for those with physical, acquired or learning disabilities as well as children and adults with autism. Their services range from innovative care, rehabilitation, and support solutions and are designed to maximise every person’s independence. Meeting the complex and challenging needs with enthusiasm, determination and passion, The Disabilities Trust works in partnership with patients, families and friends, local organisations and health authorities amongst others to deliver the best quality services.

-    Demelza
Demelza Hospice offers help to babies, children and young people who may not lead the longest life, to make sure they live the fullest life. Their wonderful care and support touches the lives of families across East Sussex, Kent and South-East London, offering a respite from the often harsh reality of living with a life-threatening or life-limiting illness. With a particular focus on the individual, they recognise that ‘everybody’s journey is unique’ and caters for that accordingly.

-    Rockinghorse
Rocking horse Children's Charity brings hope to families in challenging times, improving the quality of life for the most vulnerable children in Sussex. Net XP will be working with Rockinghorse in December as our exclusive charity partner for the 6th December Conference at Malmaison Brighton 2018.

Network Xpress’ work with these charities provide the foundations of business giving back to the community. Not only do we aim to inspire and help local businesses grow and develop and forge connections with one another in a fun, different environment, encouraging a different mindset but we want businesses to realise we all have to help each other in order to progress and so will continue to support such valuable charities across the regions.
