Brighton and Hove Citizens

Brighton and Hove Citizens logo

Brighton and Hove Citizens is an independent membership alliance of civil society institutions acting together for the common good of our city.

Our membership organisations reach over 25,000 of Brighton and Hove's citizens - pupils, teachers, parents, students and workers of all faiths and none.

Founded in April 2019 we have already held an Assembly with over 200 members of our community and the three leaders of the Labour, Conservative and Green parties in Brighton and Hove Council.

At this Assembly we announced the first issues we want to tackle - and asked the political leaders of our city to commit to change them with us.

Together our leaders and communities are:

  • Creating a Mental Health Service Pledge for our city, setting a standard for what young people can expect from our publicly funded services when needing help.
  • Working with Council to apply for Selective Licensing of Landlords, ensuring good landlords are supported and rogue landlords tackled in our city
  • Re-instating an accessible toilet in the Old Shoreham Road North Cemetery.
  • ensuring the Council supports existing providers to support our homeless community on weekends.
