Our current Charity is Forward Facing

What We Do

Registered since 2011, Forward Facing is a charity that provides activities and events for families suffering long-term illness and bereavement in the Sussex area.    Our events come in all shapes and sizes. We put on small events that focus on individual families, medium size events for small groups and large events to which all our families are invited.

Our mission is to provide fun activities that make our families happy.      We want our children to have special, unique experiences, where their confidence can grow, where their carers & families can relax and most importantly where they can make some really special memories.

We listen to our families. We work with them to develop events so that they meet the specific needs of children dealing with serious issues. It’s really important to us that every child in need has the opportunity to come to a Forward Facing event. Our work is funded solely from donations and we work diligently to keep the funding coming in so that we can continue to support our families.

Forward Facing is led by Candice Konig with support from the charity trustees, a small admin team and many volunteers, for whom we are truly grateful.
