New Funding for CBN – Future Proofing Our Community Buildings

We’re delighted to have recently received funding from the Brighton & Hove City Council’s collaboration fund to support our work with community buildings across the city.

The project is in partnership with TDC who have been working with us for the past couple of years.  They support over 150 community groups to find funding and run smoothly.

Future-proofing our Community Buildings

We know there is a need for investment in community buildings and that our members are struggling with;

  • Increased business rate levels.

  • Reduced rental income from public sector teams hiring office space.

  • A desire to be greener.

  • Increased need for community hire to bring in income.

  • Local communities that have less income themselves.

  • Increased competition for grant programmes to raise funding.

  • Greater expectation to work in partnerships to access funding.

We know it’s getting harder to fundraise and this changing economic environment requires community buildings to adapt to thrive.

This project will offer free community building health checks as well as a series of information sessions in the Autumn. More details to follow soon.
