Fluxies was founded in 2017 by Paige Fashoni, as FLUX Undies. Being the first brand of period underwear to land in the UK, when reusable period products were almost non-existent, we started on our mission to reshape the future of period care. Since then, more than 200,000 people have switched to our reusable period underwear and we've stopped over 40 million (!!!) disposables from going to landfill. Fluxies also features a gender neutral range.

WHO ARE WE?
The Martin Fisher Foundation is a Brighton & Hove charity, which was set up in September 2015 by colleagues, family and friends of Professor Martin Fisher in memory of his outstanding national and international contribution to the field of HIV research and patient care.
The Martin Fisher Foundation's vision is to eliminate new HIV cases within a generation by increasing HIV testing, through improving knowledge of HIV, increasing availability PrEP and reducing HIV stigma. Our purpose is to facilitate the city-wide HIV response wherever possible.
The charity is run by experienced Trustees who meet regularly to oversee the running of the charity. Our Patron is Baroness Gould of Potternewton.
Our mission is to promote, preserve and protect the health and wellbeing of people with or at risk of HIV by:
Increasing access to HIV testing
Supporting innovation in HIV prevention and care
Advancing public awareness of HIV to reduce stigma
Reduce new HIV infections and deaths from HIV-related illness
Improving the quality of life for people living with HIV
Our values are inspired by Martin and describe the underlying principles about how we work.
Community-centred - everything we do is for the benefit of people living with or at risk of HIV
Determined - we won’t give up until we’ve reached our goals
Inclusive - we embrace diversity and promote equality for all people living with or at risk of HIV
Inspirational - we always strive to inspire others to take action through our innovative approaches
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.
Brighton and Hove sexual health and contraception service (SHAC) is a free and confidential specialist service open to everyone regardless of age and sexuality. We offer a mix of appointments and a "walk-in and wait" service at 3 sites across the city.

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.
