Our Local Tradespeople page also contains a large store of useful information for residents whose concerns are closer to home.
Our help and services for older residents page is intended for both the over 50s and residents of any age-group who support older people wishing to remain in their homes. The purpose of Brighton & Hove's Older People's Council is to ensure that (i) the contribution of all older people in our city is acknowledged and valued, (ii) all older people in Brighton & Hove are treated with respect and dignity and have access to services, support and opportunity to lead a fulfilling life.
If you are looking for activities for children, a good external link is www.childfriendlybrighton.co.uk where you can find a good page on child-friendly activities planned for The Level. Families who like the outdoors can help to maintain their local woodland by volunteering for Friends of Hollingbury & Bursted Woods monthly Sat/Sun sessions. FHBW now have a Facebook Page publicising woodland related events.
