Community Support Fund 2021

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 - in which we serve. 

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 fund available to groups that may not have previously known about our fund we simplified the process so that community groups and charities can apply and bid for support ranging from £50 to £500. 

We will also be accepting similar amount applications for bus travel.

The decision will be made by the community team panel at Brighton & Hove Buses which consists of colleagues from across the organisation and will be judged on how well our support will serve the community in which we operate.

During the award process if the panel decides the applicant will not be awarded the grant money or free travel tickets they may look towards other ways to provide help and support. This could include the provision of free poster space on the buses or other awards at their discretion.
