Here are examples of projects previously funded by the Brighton & Hove Legacy Fund:
Hangleton and Knoll Youth Bank delivers a ‘youth positive’ activities programme, offering a range of projects and activities to young people aged 13+, including some for young women only, developed by and for local young people. Our funding paid for sessional costs of youth workers to help promote and run these activities over a year.
Brighton Table Tennis Club is a grassroots, community charity which uses table tennis to engage people living in the most deprived parts of the city. All who play with the club benefit from the diversity of its membership and the vibrant atmosphere in which strong friendships form across perceived social and cultural divides. This funding will help to deliver a project working with Brighton & Hove Muslim Forum to encourage greater integration and understanding of Muslims in the community. They will run sessions at the Al Medina Mosque, as well as at the Club.
