The Bridge Community Education Centre
The Bridge Community Education Centre established in 1999 in East Brighton, connects with vulnerable adults trapped in cycles of deprivation and unemployment and aims to engage them in learning and education. Service users can access a wide range of informal and formal learning programmes interlinking support from life skills and healthy living activities to vocational training or community activities, which are offered in conjunction with information, advice and guidance services for learning and work, a supported volunteer programme, low cost social events and a subsidised cafe. The Fore funded an informal one-to-one adult literacy package, strengthening its core offer and enabling the organisation to grow an income-generating model of delivery.
