Community support

At Brighton & Hove Buses, we don't just deliver a great bus service, we're part of the lifeblood of our vibrant city. We see it as our responsibility to sustain and connect communities. As a leading business in the city we strive to be responsible, and in every action we take, we aim to do the right thing by you - the community - from which we're made and help to make.

Community pot

Every year we've been quietly giving away small pots of money to community and charity groups to help you to continue to make Brighton & Hove the unique, vibrant, exciting, innovative arts and culture magnet that has made it the envy of cities throughout the country.

To make the whole system fairer and to make it available to groups that may not have previously known about our fund, from now on we'll be opening the offer to bids twice a year for support ranging from fifty pounds to one thousand pounds.

Those organisations we've already committed to for this year will not be affected by these new arrangements for the duration of their support package.

The decision will be made by the community team at Brighton & Hove Buses and will be judged on how well our support will serve the community in which we operate.
