Organising meetings

Meetings need not be boring! This section can help you to organise meetings that involve your members, generate new ideas and give everyone a chance to contribute to the running of your group.

If you are organising a public meeting or conference, you may also find the information in our Planning and organising events section useful.

Click on the Equipment tab at the top of this page to see our range of low-cost equipment for hire, to help make your meetings accessible and interesting. The Links tab has details of other organisations with useful information, such as venues for hire in Brighton and Hove.

The services listed below are not provided by the Resource Centre. These are websites and services we feel are particularly useful for small groups in Brighton & Hove, and which are not easy to find by searching the internet.

    All Resource Centre information is available for free because we know small community groups have small budgets. However, we are a small charity, so if you are in a position to make a donation, it will help us to keep running this service into the future.
