We work with and are funded by a variety of different organisations including local authorities, social landlords and grant making organisations and trusts. We receive no statutory or direct government funding and have to raise our own income to run our projects and services every year and to maintain our small central office and team. Without this continued effort, our services would cease.
We would like to thank and recognise the support of the following organisations for their current or recent funding:
Brighton & Hove City Council
Sussex Community Foundation
Lewes District Council
Skills Funding Agency
Big Lottery Fund
Affinity Sutton Community Grants
East Brighton Trust
Queens Park Neighbourhood Funding
We are also supported by Registered Social Landlords with whom we have Service Level Agreements to mediate between tenants in dispute. These include:
We also welcome donations from individuals and organisations who support our charitable objectives. If you would like to make a donation to our service, however large or small, please do so by either sending a cheque made out to ‘Brighton & Hove Independent Mediation Service’ along with a complated Gift Aid Form to the address below or by making a payment directly via the Just Giving link below (Gift Aid will be automatically claimed).
