Spiral Sussex Ltd. (est. 2000) is a charity for disabled adults in Brighton & the surrounding areas. At our day centre in Bevendean, one of the few still open in Brighton, we provide some of the most vulnerable people in society with opportunities to socialise, learn skills and have fun while providing respite for them and their carers. We also provide specialist holidays.

We are looking for volunteers to support clients to access our holidays, which will include providing personal care, supporting them to access activities and generally socialising with them. We run two 1-week holidays per month, currently in the UK only.
