Thanks to a donation from the SCOPE Local People Programme, we now have two lightweight, folding, portable ramps available to hire.
These are great for events where there is a single step at the entrance or somewhere within the venue. Having a ramp instead of a step can be helpful for people with buggies, people who use walking frames and people with sight impairments, as well as wheelchair users.
Both our ramps can be transported easily in the boot of a car. One is 2ft long, and the other is 4ft long.
We will be working with SCOPE now to produce some guidance on how to make your activities and events more accessible in all sorts of ways. Watch this space…
How do we make change for good through collective action?
Organised by Brighton & Hove Community Land Trust
Three interactive one-day courses teaching skills that will help you with your campaigning, activism, or simply at work or in your neighbourhood. The training gives you a framework to use and practical tools to try, and is great for housing groups, co-ops, community organisations of all shapes and sizes and interested individuals.
These three courses are designed to be attended together for maximum learning and benefit, but courses can be attended individually.
Have you got an idea or are you starting up a new group, business or activity that’s good for the community or environment but you aren’t sure whether it’s charitable or commercial?
Join The Good Business Club and Community Works on Thursday 30th January for an introduction to the world of charities, community groups, and social enterprise to get clarity and confidence to start up your social impact venture.
You’ll leave this event with:

Clarity on legal structures and which would be most suitable for your venture
Information about funding opportunities you can access
Information about the support you can access to help you get started
New connections to purpose-driven individuals
Guidance on what steps you can take to get started straight away
All sessions and activities throughout the event will be hosted by experienced specialists in these areas, including legal experts, who are all on hand to answer any questions you might have throughout the event.
