Trust for Developing Communities

The Trust for Developing Communities tackles inequality in Brighton and Hove through community-led solutions. TDC practices Asset Based Community Development, an approach that empowers communities to drive development themselves by identifying and utilising the assets and strengths they already possess. Staff work across a variety of neighbourhoods and citywide, supporting communities and individuals to develop and flourish, bringing skills and resources in consultation, group development, project planning, governance and fundraising to help build on existing assets.
TDC encourages participatory leadership and offers informal and formal training on community development.

Brighton Permaculture Trust

Brighton Permaculture Trust is a charity that promotes sustainable lifestyles, biodiversity and community cohesion through our courses, events and projects. 

  • The trust runs a wide variety of courses related to food growing, low impact building techniques and permaculture design. 
  • Our Scrumping project reduces the amount of fruit that goes to waste by collecting unwanted fruit from local gardens and farms and turning it into juices and other products. 
  • Our plot at Stanmer Organics demonstrates regenerative food growing, with produce shared amongst volunteers and with local food banks. 
  • The trust has planted over 130 school and community orchards and manages several orchards in Brighton & Hove, including Racehill Community Orchard. Many of the orchards we have planted are in economically deprived areas and give valuable opportunities for community building, connecting with nature and will improve food security and access to fresh fruit for local people as the orchards mature.
