Charity organisations in Brighton and Hove merge

Posted On 28 Nov 2013 at 12:30 am

Four organisations in the third sector – or charitable sector – in Brighton and Hove have formally merged.

The four have created a new representative body called Community Works. They were previously the

  • Community and Voluntary Sector Forum (CVSF)
  • Volunteer Centre
  • Performance Development Service
  • Skills Exchange

Community Works said that it would “help organisations and individuals across Brighton and Hove make as big a difference as possible to local lives and issues”.

It planned to target “anyone from community groups and voluntary organisations and volunteers to businesses and public sector organisations – anyone who wants to give their time, expertise and energy towards making our city a better place for everyone”.

The merger and the new organisation were celebrated at a reception last night (Wednesday 27 November) at Community Base in Queen’s Road, Brighton.

The reception followed a conference earlier in the day when the focus was on “creating a sector manifesto”.

It was intended to bring together an outline of who the sector is, what it does, its values and its ambitions for the future.
