Service update 25th March 2020
Since the most recent public health guidelines for the Covid-19 outbreak, we have again altered the ways we are working as a staff team in order to 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 a new information sheet on video and telephone meeting tools
Emergency grant funding for groups responding to the Covid-19 crisis is available from:
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.
Equipment hire service
The equipment hire service is suspended until 31/5/20. 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.
