Ensuring equality and working with communities

Working with the Community and Voluntary Sector


Brighton and Hove City Council

Brighton and Hove City Council has faced significant funding challenges, but despite this they have maintained their support for the community and voluntary sector. The council has worked with the sector on a new approach to grant funding, and have been able to consolidate this new approach and protect the level of grant funding that is supporting it. Grants made to the community and voluntary sector are able to generate additional income as a result, and the latest estimate of this locally is that the council’s grants programme generates £3 for every £1 of investment. By maintaining the grants programme, the council is bringing many additional benefits to vulnerable residents in the city who are supported by the local community and voluntary sector.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
