About Our Cause

R.I.S.E stands for Refuge, Information, Support and Education. Find out more about the child therapy services you'll be raising money for when you take part in HEROES RUN.

RISE help those affected by domestic abuse and we work alongside survivors by giving practical support to help them rebuild safer lives. We achieve this through our fundraising events, including the HEROES RUN and our RISE 8K Undercliff for Women.

Every year we support over 2,000 women and their families to recover and reclaim their lives. Our charity offers practical help including counselling, children's therapy, legal advice to refuge space to those in urgent need.

Fundraising from the HEROES RUN is dedicated to our service's, a much-needed service, as we are the only domestic abuse charity in East Sussex dedicated to helping those affected by domestic abuse recover from their experiences. By running the HEROES RUN and raising sponsorship, you will be directly helping local families affected by domestic abuse.

With your help RISE will be able to help those affected by domestic abuse with their mental health, their safety and provide them hope of a brighter future.
