Introducing Alan, trustee for Peer Action

We are so very happy to welcome Alan Spink as a trustee for Peer Action. Alan kindly responded to our call for trustees in the beginning of the year, bringing his amazing energy, skills and experience to help us move forward to the next stage of our journey as a community group.

Alan is the patient representative with the Martin Fisher Foundation, a peer mentor with the Sussex Beacon and the creative force behind Stiggy the Stigmasaur. He is looking forward to working with us on behalf of people living with or affected by HIV in the Brighton & Hove area.

We take the opportunity to thank Alan for his willingness to join us, and we wish him an exciting and enjoyable journey (definitely a busy one!) working alongside the other trustees: Adriana Silva, Aileen Norbury, Ian Seymour and Terry Clarke.

You are very welcome Alan!

Yoga with Alistair

NEW! The Rainbow Hub in St James’s Street

There’s an exciting new space that is opening soon in St James’s Street Brighton. The Rainbow Hub is a local point of contact for LGBT+ people seeking up to date help, information or guidance, in a safe, non judgemental environment.

Peer Action is very pleased to be working with the volunteers from The Hub and supporting the community with our Well-being therapy days and weekly Yoga days.

In recognition of National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2018 Peer Action attended The Rainbow Hub’s Candlelit Reception and Vigil on Wednesday 17th October at St James Street, Brighton,
There were light refreshments and the vigil took place outside the Hub at 7pm.

It was a great turnout and the community made a very loud 2 minutes ‘noise’ to shout about the awareness week!

Many thanks to  Alan Flack, manager and Billie Lewis, Chair of the LGBT community safety forum.
