The voluntary sector is stretched to breaking point, according to the boss of Brighton’s biggest community organisation.
Sally Polanski, CEO at Community Works in Queens Road, said that if Brighton and Hove City Council makes further cuts to the sector in its forthcoming budget, the survival of some charities in the city will be in question.Oh, really?
Ms Polanski said that community organisations in Brighton and Hove had managed to buck the trend so far by snaring funds from...The public? Been out there rattling the tins and rustling the sponsorship forms, have they?
...outside the city.
She said ten charities in the city brought in £2 million from the Big Lottery Fund’s Reaching Communities Programme.Oh. Silly me...
We no longer need to give to charity. Other people do it for us.
