Service update 4th November 2020

Due to new guidance from the government we are reducing the number of staff working in the Centre. We will maintain services to groups, but our turnaround times for printing and responding to emails maybe slightly longer. The support we can give your group at the moment is:

Services by phone and email

We will continue to be available for telephone and email enquiries between 10am and 1pm, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Information for groups

We have new and regularly updated information sheets on:

If you’re looking for help around the coronavirus, need to signpost or refer people to the right support in the city, go to: Covid Brighton & Hove (compiled by Trust for Developing Communities and Community Works)

Printing, badges and stickers

We are offering a printing service for groups. If you need printing done, send us your artwork by email and we will print for you and arrange a time for you to collect from the doorstep. We are taking care to follow strict safety guidelines while printing. We will not be making an additional labour charge for this service for any groups.

We can make up to 200 badges and an unlimited number of stickers. You just need to decide on the size(s) you would like and email us your artwork using our badge/sticker templates.

When collecting printing, please wear a mask, and ring our doorbell to let us know you have arrived. We will wear masks and maintain a 2m distance when bringing your printing outside – please step back from the door to enable this.

Equipment hire service

Our equipment hire service remains suspended until end of December 2020. We are currently working on re-opening some or all of our equipment service after this date in ways that are safe and socially responsible and we will have further updates for you soon. Please fill in our very short survey to help us provide useful equipment services in the future.

Support for member groups

We are continuing to offer support services for our member groups:

  • One to one support sessions will all be by telephone or video call between now and the end of 2020. We will work with each group individually in the way that is best for you, while keeping us all safe.
  • To bring in paperwork for an examination of accounts, please contact us by email or phone to arrange a time to drop things off at the doorstep, or an alternative way to get the information to us.

Christmas closure

We will close for Christmas at 1pm on Friday 18th December and services will restart on Monday 4th January.

Review

We will be reviewing all of this regularly and will issue further updates on our website and via social media if it changes.
