PLEASE NOTE! The Resource Centre will be closed from Monday 7th November to Friday 11th November 2022. We won’t be offering any services at all during this week.

Whatever your group is doing, from producing a newsletter to putting on a funday, from organising an AGM to running a sports club, the Resource Centre has a service designed to make things easier for you:

Our current services

We are continuing to review our Covid-19 safety measures. Access to most of our services is currently by appointment – please see below for details:

Equipment hire

Equipment can be booked in advance by phone or email, or by submitting a booking request via our equipment pages. This service is currently available for groups based in Brighton & Hove only.

Equipment collection and returns are currently available on Mondays and Fridays (with additional days at exceptionally busy times). There is a maximum limit of 8 items per group (except for member groups), and specified collection/return times will be allocated to help keep us all safe.


If you need printing done, send us your artwork by email and we will print for you and let you know when it is ready for you to collect from the doorstep.

Services by phone and email

We are available for telephone and email enquiries between 9am and 4pm, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Support for member groups

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

  • We can now offer one-to-one support sessions face-to-face (for a maximum of 2 group members at a time), or by phone or video.
  • If you have arranged a face-to-face support session, we ask that you take a lateral flow test on the day of the appointment and only attend if the result is negative (we can supply tests). Please do not come to the Centre if you have symptoms of any infectious illness.
  • To bring in paperwork for an examination of accounts, please contact us by email or phone to arrange a time to bring your paperwork in to the Centre.


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

Best wishes from the Resource Centre team

Groups in Sussex can hire equipment for fetes and fairs, playschemes, after school clubs, meetings, and lots of other events.

Groups in Sussex can access our DIY community print room. We offer cheap self-service printing in black & white or colour, or a printing service at extra cost. To find out how cheap, use our online print quote calculator or go to our price list.
