About Our Cause

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

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 SUPERHEROES SUMMER and our RISE 8K Run 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 and refuge space to those in urgent need.

Following the COVID-19 Pandemic, are services are needed more than ever with a prevalent rise in cases of domestic abuse across the UK.

Fundraising from this year's Superheroes Summer is dedicated to our services, as we are the only domestic abuse charity in Brighton & Hove dedicated to helping those affected by domestic abuse recover from their experiences. By taking part in this year's Superheroes Summer, 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.
