ACTive NGOS project in East Brighton

ACTive NGOs - an opportunity to strengthen the great community activity and involvement in East Brighton

ACTive NGOs is a project involving residents, community groups and public services across six countries, giving people the opportunity to visit each other and look at how people can really work together to make good communities. 

East Brighton has many community venues, public buildings and open spaces and the main focus of the project is to ensure that these are used in a way that works for the needs of local people. The project will bring together the people who are responsible for buildings and spaces, with the wider community, it will look at what activities are happening in these buildings, look at how the community can access them and even look for funds to support residents and community groups to create new activities and projects. 

Bristol Estate, Manor Farm and Whitehawk are neighbourhoods with strong community spirit, with a great number of dedicated and passionate community champions. We hope that this project will provide fresh ideas and support for current community champions while bringing about a new generation of active community members in East Brighton. 

What we hope to achieve through the project – the legacy for East Brighton
