CASE Central was born on 29 April 2015, counting on the professionalism, enthusiasm and creativity of our teams of welfare rights advisers, events organisers and front of house volunteers, and their 10+ years experience.

Since April 2015 we have filled the void left by two charities that provided welfare advice and free events for children (Brighton and Hove Unwaged Advice and Rights Centre and Brighton and Hove Parents and Children Group). Such help is even more necessary now, in times of draconian cuts to welfare benefits and services, and of rising housing and fuel costs.

For this reason we have received warm support from the local community in Hollingdean, as well as many hundreds of families and disabled/unemployed people from the whole Brighton and Hove.

CASE Central is a hub for local people in Hollingdean. We are open every week day, 10-5, offering a friendly space for socialising, free tea/coffee, free bread/snacks, free clothes, free telephone for welfare purposes, and cheap/free computer access.

We offer free Welfare Rights advice, as well as practical support to anyone in Hollingdean and the whole city – even beyond.

We also continue a 15 years tradition of organising recreational and educational events for children of families on low incomes and refugees, which many hundreds of parents and children have taken part in.
