BMECP Centre

The new BMECP Resource CentreBMECP manages the BMECP Centre a flagship building built as part of the New England Quarter development near Brighton Station. The building has a gross internal floor area of 4,908 sq ft on the lower ground floor, and 4,650 sq ft on the ground floor. Both floors were finished to a basic shell and core.

The Centre which opened in 2010 supports a broad range of activities that are primarily designed to enable the Black and minority ethnic (BME) communities of Brighton and Hove to participate fully in the economic and social life of the city. All community led organisations whose aims and objectives are compatible with BMECP will be welcome to make use of its facilities. At least 66% of the available floor space is given over to activities that support job-related training and enterprise development.

It is an integral feature of the Centre that it should be operated by BMECP, in tandem with a partnership of statutory and voluntary sector organisations that indicate the willingness and commitment to address the critical needs of the BME and wider communities of Brighton & Hove. BMECP has a good track record of working collaboratively in meeting the needs of BME communities.
