We aim to make the Brighton & Hove City Council website as accessible and useable as we can for all our visitors.
If you have any problems using the website, feedback will give us guidance so we can make it better. Please, if you experience any trouble accessing services or information on the council site, contact us.
If you want some support around starting to use the internet to access council services you might benefit from using our Library Connect service at Brighton & Hove libraries.
For those of you needing further help on accessing websites, we hope the following information will be useful.
