Brighton’s Rainbow Hub has announced it is re-opening in the heart of the LGBTQ+ community at 93 St James’s Street, Brighton, BN2 1TP.
From Tuesday, September 1, their volunteers will be providing a welcoming drop-in space for support and signposting advice, initially every Tuesday and Thursday from 3-6pm, Saturday from 12-3pm, and then, very soon, back to full-time hours.
The Rainbow Hub adapted quickly to the new challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic and, during the lockdown, transferred all of their services over to a telephone system staffed by their volunteers. Now though they are looking forward to welcoming visitors back for face-to-face consultations.
Carolyn Ansell, Rainbow Hub’s Manager, said: ‘We have been busy preparing the Hub according to Covid-19 guidelines and requirements to keep our volunteers and visitors safe.
‘Our volunteers are at the core of the Rainbow Hub, and they have been awesome in adapting to these unprecedented times in continuing to support our community. Our doors are re-opening for three days a week initially, but follow us on social media as we will extend the opening times very soon.’
