Our mission is to help people improve their wellbeing and mental health, particularly those who are under-represented or excluded.

Reaching underrepresented communities

The Sussex Mindfulness Centre offers mindfulness training to communities who are not normally able to access services. Some groups we have worked with recently include refugees and asylum seekers, black, Asian and people of colour communities, LGBTQ and people with learning disabilities.

See a blog post ‘miracles of mindfulness’ following the second course we ran for international women; migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.

We’re partnering with local organisations who represent these communities, to make our training more inclusive and relevant. In 2023, we ran adapted mindfulness training courses for five groups, and we want to continue this work in 2024.

We’re keen to offer mindfulness teacher training to individuals from these communities, so that future training courses can be led by people from the groups we’re seeking to reach.

We’re keen to expand this important work and reach out to more people who experience the most health inequalities. Please donate here to support us. Thank you!
