Brighton Community Base launches new website

Community Base have launched a new website, redesigned to make the site easier to use when searching for volunteer posts, jobs, services and venues in the Brighton and Hove area. Local organisations can now advertise their services and volunteer opportunities directly on the site, making it a valuable resource for the community. The site will also soon feature an events calendar to promote the wide range of events happening at the centre.

Olivia Canham, Centre Manager, said “We’re delighted with this new site, which we hope residents of Brighton and Hove will find even more useful than before. At Community Base we aim to provide real help to real people, and this site enables us to do that.”

Situated in a seven floor building a few minutes from Brighton station, Community Base provides affordable office space, meeting rooms and a wide range of other services to organisations and local people in a friendly, supportive and cooperative environment.

Since opening in 1997, dozens of community and voluntary groups have made use of the Community Base building. There are currently nearly thirty groups based within the centre with their diversity reflecting the variety of people in the local area – groups are involved with homeless people, ethnic minorities, carers, parents, volunteers, asylum seekers, older people, travellers and many others.

To view the site please visit www.communitybase.org.  For further information please email reception@communitybase.org, call 01273 234000 or call into the Community Base reception in person.
