A CHARITY for young adults with learning disabilities is appealing for funds after being forced to move to make way for a new GP surgery.

Team Domenica, which launched less than a year ago to help young adults with learning difficulties find work, has been told to move out of the building it is renting in the Old Steine, Brighton, after plans for a 12,000 patient doctor’s surgery to take its place emerged.

The charity has taken over a derelict former warehouse in Preston Road which will offer more space for the project to expand but is in urgent need of investment to bring the facilities up to scratch.

It needs to raise £35,000 by the end of August so the building can be ready for when term begins again on September 4.

Founded by campaigner Rosa Monckton, the centre is named after her daughter Domenica – a goddaughter of Princess Diana – who has Down’s syndrome.
