The Brighton Fund

The Brighton Fund is a small charitable trust that is administered by Brighton & Hove Council. The fund is specifically aimed at individuals in need.

The Brighton Fund has two objectives.

  • The primary objective is the relief of Brighton residents who are over the age of 60 and who are in need, hardship or distress.
  • The second objective is the general relief of Brighton residents who are in need, hardship or distress.

The usual type of help that the fund provides is by way of a small 'one off' grant.

The Trustees usually award household items, i.e. fridges, freezers, washing machines, beds, mattresses and small white goods.
