We're a Brighton-based charity that has been supporting sick children in Sussex for 50 years.
Rockinghorse is a Brighton-based charity which has been supporting children for nearly 50 years. It was set up in 1967 by Dr Trevor Mann, who recognised there was a real need for additional resources to improve healthcare services for sick children and babies.
We are the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital (the Alex) and also support the Trevor Mann Baby Unit (TMBU) in Brighton as well as the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) in Haywards Heath. We raise money for life-saving and cutting-edge medical equipment while ensuring that children are treated in an environment that is better suited to their needs.
Working in partnership with the Alex, TMBU and SCBU, we strive to make services stimulating, cutting edge and accessible for the many babies, children and teenagers who need them. We believe no matter where they are, children should be allowed to be children.
We do not receive any government funding and so we rely on the generous support of individuals, community groups, companies and trusts: people like you.
