The Resource Centre is a charity serving voluntary and community groups in the Brighton and Hove area. We are used by around 800 different local groups every year, from playgroups to environmental campaigns, residents associations to arts organisations.
The Centre has been in existence since 1975. Through many changes over the decades since then, the Centre has retained its unique position as a supportive space for grass roots community activity in Brighton and Hove. Our Theory of Change outlines our distinctive philosophy and aims.
We provide a well-resourced print room, a range of equipment for hire, a calm space to work, and a widely praised online information service for groups. For our member groups, we offer additional services. All our services have been developed in response to requests from community groups.
We are a small charity. Over 90% of all our income is spent directly on providing services for community groups.
We keep all our prices as low as possible because we know small groups often have small budgets. If you are able to contribute a bit more, it will help ensure we can keep our valuable services running into the future.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
