Service update 1st June 2020
We at the Resource Centre are continuing to work in ways that keep our staff and users safe, and act in socially responsible ways. We are pleased to still be able to offer support and services for local community groups in the following ways:
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 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 leave the finished printing outside the door for you to collect. We are taking care to follow strict safety guidelines while printing (wearing masks and gloves, physical distancing measures). We will not be making an additional labour charge for this service for any groups.
If your group would like any badges or stickers, we can now make these for you too. 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. We will make these for you, following strict safety guidelines, and leave the finished products outside for the door for you to collect.
Equipment hire service
Our equipment hire service is suspended until 31st July 2020. This will be reviewed ahead of that date and we will make a further decision then. We won’t be able to honour any equipment bookings between now and then.
Support for member groups
We will continue to offer support services for our member groups, with some changes:
- to bring in paperwork for an examination of accounts, please contact us by email or phone to arrange a time to drop things in, or an alternative way to get the information to us
- we will arrange telephone or video calls for one-to-one advice and will work with each group individually to find a method that best suits your needs
We will be reviewing all of this regularly and will issue further updates on our website and via social media if it changes.
Could you make a donation?
This is undoubtedly going to have a financial impact on the Resource Centre, as our income from the print service and equipment hire service dries up. If you would like to make a donation, we would really appreciate it.
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.

We offer additional support to Resource Centre member groups. These groups are run by and for people living in areas of social housing, black and minority ethnic people, and disabled people.
