Portland Road and Portslade

We have had a number of recent enquiries from people looking to access their local food bank. Please note that although TDC supports many food banks across the city, we do not actually manage them. If you are looking to contact your local food bank, please refer to this page for details.

Crowd of visitors at Stoneham CentenaryThank you for making me feel so very welcome as a volunteer especially during a period of my life which is currently very soul destroying for me. It is extremely good to feel I am ‘useful’ and know that I am contributing something to the community again.
Simon Watkinson, Purple People Kitchen Food Bank Volunteer

After my husband died I felt very isolated and lonely. Lorette took me to the Freedom Club where I have made many new friends. I have learnt to play short mat bowls and also joined the Over 50’s Tai Chi group.

Featured Projects

The Alliance of Friends of Parks (West)

This new project in the west of the city brings together eight parks across Hove and Portslade. They are: Easthill, Mile Oak, Victoria, Vale, Hangleton, Knoll, Wish and Stoneham Parks.

Residents have come together to share good practice and resources, and to support each other in putting on events in their respective parks. The Alliance will also be a united voice for parks in the area and link in with partnerships like the Green Spaces Network and other like minded 'Friends of' groups throughout the city.

The West Hove Forum (WHF)

The West Hove Forum (WHF) exists as an umbrella group for community activity in the area. Members come from a range of community groups and businesses, and meet on a bi-monthly basis. Recent guest speakers include Katy Bourne, The Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner.

The WHF act as a community focus for the Police and PCSO's to report to and set local priorities. The WHF also distribute the Healthy Neighbourhood Fund to local community organisations; groups who apply and can evidence that their projects hit prescibed health and wellbeing criteria for the benefit of residents in West Hove.
