1770 Tattoo
Category
Long Description

1770 is located over 3 floors in a period “cottage” just on the edge of Brighton’s lanes, moments from the sea. We have been open since 2005, which makes us one of the longest running tattoo shops in Brighton. For the first 11 years we were the “sister” shop to the famed Into You in Clerkenwell, London that ran from 1993-2016. We fancied a change and have been called 1770 since 2016. Our family of artists have all been tattooing for quite a few years now, and between us we have around 100 years combined experience! Many of us have traveled extensively and worked all around the globe and we are happy to have settled here in beautiful Brighton, one of the most liberal cities in the U.K. Our tattoo experience is second to none, and we pride ourselves on the best possible hygiene standards, even more important in this post Covid world!

Our shop is a great place to visit, filled with natural light and stacked with interesting artworks made by us and some of our extended tattoo family. As artists we all have differing approaches and styles, but we see tattooing as a collaboration between artist and client and our aim is to make a tattoo that YOU are happy to wear for the rest of your life. We specialise in custom tattooing, and work mainly by appointment, however feel free to call, email or drop by and we’ll try and fit you in. Times have changed since many of us started tattooing, but we don’t follow the crowd and are considered some of the very best on the south coast. And yes, we do have vegan inks! See you soon.

Bi the way Pompey
Long Description

Portsmouth is nailing it with their fabulous queer initiatives, but there's one small detail...Where's the love for our Bi+ community? That's where the quirky and brilliant idea of "Bi the Way Pompey" comes in! One overly anxious Bi woman, tired of being pegged as an ally or feeling like she doesn't quite fit in at queer events, decided to flip the script and create a Bi-positive space and sing from the rooftops how essential we are to the momentum of queer Pompey!!
Don't be fooled! Carving a cozy corner for Bi+ folks and allies doesn't mean we're building walls. Instead, we're excited to team up with our Queer community pals, to kindle better bonds and deeper understanding. Let's unite and rock this rainbow!

Hastings Pride
Category
Long Description

We are a small team first brought together in the early part of 2016 where we organised the Hastings Pride Launch Party.

Following on from the success of the Launch Party in 2016 we then went on to set up Hastings Pride CIC as a not for profit organisation.

When drawing up our governing documents we made sure that Hastings Pride would always be a free event. We felt that charging people would detract and arguably prevent us from our primary goal of breaking down the social barriers which exist within society today.

Hastings Pride CIC was incorporated in March 2017 as a stand-alone Community Interest Company.

Health In Mind

How do I know if I need help?

Of the thousands of referrals we receive each year, many are from people who don’t know what is wrong. They only know that their life is not enjoyable.

We often find people have waited several months or even longer before making contact. We encourage people to identify symptoms and make a referral sooner. Tackling issues at an earlier stage means quicker access to treatment and can prevent symptoms from worsening.

We know it takes courage to talk with someone about how you’re feeling. We offer a safe space where you can do that.

Prepster
Long Description

Who we are
PrEPster was founded in October 2015 by four London based HIV prevention activists, in response to the lack of clear and concise educational info available about PrEP. In particular, those activists were concerned about the lack of information to key communities including gay and bi men, Black African communities, trans people, sex workers and migrants.

PrEPster is known for being independent from any statutory or voluntary sector organisations. We believe that our work should be led by and should over-serve populations that are less likely to access PrEP education materials but are most in need of it. Our work focuses on being diverse, ensuring that those communities of concern are at the heart of our planning and our work.

Collectively, we have a wealth of over 50 years experience in public health and advocacy, and most of us are either living with HIV, PrEP users or are in sero-discordant relationships.

PrEPster is a program of The Love Tank, a not-for-profit community interest community (CIC) that promotes the health and wellbeing of under-served communities through education, capacity building and research.

Reengage – Rainbow call companions
Long Description

 As you get older it’s not unusual to spend more time on your own, particularly if you’ve lost loved ones or your health isn’t what it used to be.

Following the success of our call companions service, we launched rainbow call companions: a free telephone befriending service for LGBT+ people who are lonely, isolated or in need of companionship and feel they would benefit from a friendly phone call every week or two. This is a service specifically for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender plus (LGBT+) people aged 75+ who would like to speak to someone who’s also LGBT+.

Calls last for half an hour or so and you can chat about anything that interests you. What's great is that the same volunteer phones you every time, so you can get to know each other and share stories and laughter – for as long as you both want.

Rainbow call companions has been awarded by the NHS National Advisor for LGBT Health award (2022), which recognises outstanding work by individuals and groups across the NHS and VCSE sector to improve the experience of LGBT+ patients and the LGBT+ workforce and shine a light on examples of best practice.

The Hummingbird Refugee Project
Long Description

In the summer of 2015, after a volunteering on the ground, our small team assessed what the biggest needs were for refugees in Calais and Dunkirk so we could focus our time and resources. We met with refugees in the camp and they described to us how they’d had their most basic human rights refused, we heard repeated stories of daily abuse and humiliation inflicted by gangs and shockingly, the CRS French military police (paid for by the UK.) It was very clear that most people lacked access to basic health care, aid and shelter. Following the photograph of Syrian toddler Alan Kurdi, (who had tragically drowned crossing the Mediterranean) appearing on the front pages of most mainstream newspapers, we quickly started to receive hundreds of emails offering help and thousands of pound in donations. These donations enabled our team to grow significantly.

Sam Hall
MBBS, FRCA, MRCGP

Sam qualified in London in 1993, and became a GP after a 15 year career as a hospital consultant.
He has several areas of interest in general practice including women’s health, trans-affirming care, food as medicine, neurodivergence and trauma-informed practice.

Sam's passion is training a multi-professional primary care workforce suited to meeting the needs of those facing healthcare inequalities.
It is a basic human right to have our healthcare needs met, and enabling this requires a different way of learning. Changing the health of the nation necessitates making healthcare accessible to all.
