You are more likely to keep active if you are having fun and have friends to enjoy yourself with.
We all know how important it is to have active interests, to be able to take part in these alongside your friends, always having fun and learning along the way.
We are very proud of the variety of workshops and activities we are providing in our community and in our growing Friendship Group.
Please follow the links below to find out what you would like to do.
We are all about people, fun, friendship and having new experiences in a safe and supported environment.
The variety of the activities on offer will engage you, nurture your ambitions and enrich your life. What will get your attention?
Our varied programme of activities is kindly supported by the Brighton District Nursing Association Trust, Chalk Cliff Trust, Ernest Kleinwort Charitable Trust, Heart Research UK and Subway, and Arnold Clark Community Fund.
Following the great success of our Friendship Group in helping so many people to make new friends and try new things, the format of the group will be changing to include more people through bigger events.
With thanks to Brighton & Hove City Council for funding new changes over the coming year, the new group will give people the opportunity to volunteer as part of an events team, who will plan and organise events for Grace Eyre.
If you have questions or want to get involved, please contact Jenny Good at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07816 646 331.
The Purple Club House is a monthly club night run by people with learning disabilities for everyone in the community. It features DJs, dancing and quizzes and usually has a theme. It gives people the opportunity to go out more, make new friends and have fun.
But it can’t happen without your support. Please donate to make sure that people with learning disabilities can continue to connect with their friends and have a good time.
If you want to receive information about future club nights, sign up to our mailing list.
Catch up with some of our past club nights online.
We have now closed our Art Studio space at The Open Market, our physical art space. Instead we are moving to an online virtual trading space that will support a wide range of artists and provide employment opportunities for the art community we support.
We will be announcing our new online platform supporting marginalised artists in May 2023 in conjunction with the Artists Open House festival.
In the meantime, take a look at some of the Grace Eyre Art Collective’s recent work:
Grace Eyre’s allotment is one of approximately 300 plots at the Weald Allotment site in Hove.
It is a fantastic space with huge potential to provide opportunities for the people we support. It is a place where we can establish connections with the wider community, break down barriers and contribute to a more equal and inclusive society.
We are also working with the charity Plot 22 to establish a collaborative partnership bringing people from different communities and groups together.
Our allotment is kindly supported by the Asda Foundation’s Bringing Communities Back Together fund, the Tony Barnard Foundation the Ian Askew Charitable Trust.
