The Bridge welcomes Ben Poulton to the team.
Ben has been volunteering with us for a year and has been offered the chance to step up into a paid role of Operations and Events Assistant for a 12 week period.
Mary Goodchild, Chair of Trustees at The Bridge, has been publicly acknowledged by Prime Minister, David Cameron, as an "outstanding individual volunteer".
We are delighted to inform you that the Bridge Community Education Centre has received funding for the next two years to put on a programme of free activities, events and trips for older people living in the Moulsecoomb area who are aged 50 years plus.
The Adult Learners’ Week South-East Region European Social Fund Individual Award was presented to Angela Girling from Brighton at a ceremony in London on June 10, 2015.

The Bridge is part of a European Regional Development Fund project, Interreg IVA 2 Seas, involving three cities - Carvin in France, Brighton & Hove in the UK and Turnhout in Flanders, Belgium.
The aim is to help people overcome barriers to learning, skills and education and improve the quality of their lives.
The Bridge Cafe is a very busy little enterprise running not just a cafe service but is also developing a very popular catering service that raises funds for the charitable work of The Bridge. Such is its growing popularity that the team recently afternoon tea for the Queen’s visit at the official opening of the The Keep!
However, disaster struck recently when a much used fridge in the kitchen decided it was no longer in good working order and refused to chill the food any longer.
The first time I approached the Bridge to volunteer I was a lonely single mother, who just moved to the area. I didn’t know anyone and my self-confidence was down, but I said to myself “why not to try once more to get involved in something”.
The volunteers attended an Annual Summer Celebration at the Bridge. The event was a great success and gave us a great opportunity to say a massive thank you to all our volunteers for all their time, dedication and commitment over the year.
We made huge progress at our day in the garden with staff, volunteers and residents joining in the activities. It was a hard day’s work for us and we achieved a lot...
If you are currently not working but are having to think about moving towards paid employment then Progress! is for you.
