The Resource Centre is a charity serving voluntary and community groups in the Brighton and Hove area. We are used by around 800 different local groups every year, from playgroups to environmental campaigns, residents associations to arts organisations.
The Centre has been in existence since 1975. Through many changes over the decades since then, the Centre has retained its unique position as a supportive space for grass roots community activity in Brighton and Hove.
We provide a well-resourced print room, a range of equipment for hire, a calm space to work, and a widely praised online information service for groups. For our member groups, we offer additional services. All our services have been developed in response to requests from community groups.
We are legally constituted as a limited company, Brighton & Hove Social Welfare and Educational Trust. The company is registered in England under no. 1730256. Registered Charity no. 287516. We are registered for VAT under no. 861 1001 75.
We receive core funding support from Brighton & Hove Council under the Third Sector Commisisoning Prospectus for Brighton & Hove.
We are also grateful to Sussex Crisis Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund Coronavirus Support Fund, for generous emergency grant funding during 2020-21.
See our How we are funded page for more detail on where our money comes from and how it is spent.
