A charity which runs an advice centre for disabled people is crowdfunding in a bid to keep the service going.

Possability People said its Advice Centre, which offers support to more than 4,500 people each year, had its funding cut. It’s now looking to raise £29,000 to keep the service going.

Geraldine Des Moulins, Possability People chief executive, said: “With the loss of 85 per cent of its already modest funding from the Brighton & Hove Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), there’s simply no way the drop-in service can survive, leaving many, often highly vulnerable people with nowhere left to turn to.”

Brighton and Hove CCG said it must ‘focus NHS funding on supporting services which have been proven to have the most impact on people’s health and that are not already provided in the community’.
