FB_FindUsOnFacebook-144Whatever 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

Due to the continuing Covid situation, we are still operating with a reduced number of staff in the Centre. The support we can give your group at the moment is:

Equipment hire

Our equipment hire service is now open again for groups in Brighton & Hove. Equipment can be booked in advance by phone or email, or by submitting a booking request via our itemised equipment pages.

Equipment collection and returns are currently available on Mondays and Fridays. 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.


  • We are still closed for DIY printing options for groups, but we are running a printing service for groups instead.
  • 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 will not be making an additional labour charge for this service.
  • When collecting printing, please wear a mask, and ring our doorbell to let us know you have arrived. We will wear masks when bringing your printing outside – please step back from the door to enable this.

Services by phone and email

We are available for telephone and email enquiries between 9am and 4pm, 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)

Support for member groups

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

  • One-to-one support sessions can now be done by phone or video. From 7th June, we will be able to offer pre-booked one-to-one sessions in person at the Centre. We will work with each group 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.


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.

Community Print Room

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.
