This page highlights the organisations that we have invested in through SE-Assist.
Purple Playhouse Theatre CIC
The Purple Playhouse Theatre is a fully licensed, fully accessible and centrally located community resource.
It is the ideal venue to host a diverse range of musical gigs, performances and events with lovely acoustics in a comfortable and welcoming setting and the programme aims to be as diverse and inclusive as possible.
The Purple Playhouse is also much more than a theatre – it’s a Community Interest Company (CIC) associated with the Grace Eyre Foundation that has a range of spaces available for hire – from the theatre and meeting rooms to training kitchens and even a beach hut!
Engage & Create
Engage & Create is a not-for-profit organisation working to improve quality of life for people with dementia and those that care for them.
They believe involvement in art enables participation in a meaningful, intellectual activity and opportunity for personal growth.
The Bevy is the first co-operative pub to have been opened on a housing estate in the UK.
More than just a pub, its a community hub with a wide range of activities in an area where there is nowhere decent to meet, eat or drink.
Ecological Land Co-operative
The Ecological Land Co-operative (ELC) provides affordable sites for ecological land based livelihoods in the UK.
The sites are for new entrants, for example, to organic horticulture, who would otherwise not be able to access land.
Shika is a sustainable fashion label producing African inspired clothing for the socially aware customer.
Shika also provides employment, educational opportunities and on the job training to people in the UK and Tanzania.

SCIP provide low cost, high quality ethical IT services.
Their clients are primarily charities, voluntary, community organisations and other not-for-profit groups. They also welcome enquiries from companies who are looking for an ethical, high quality IT supplier.
Little Green Pig Writing Project is a non-profit creative writing organisation for children and young people, based in Brighton & Hove.
We believe that writing unleashes imaginations and builds confidence, self-respect and communication.
We want to set up a centre in Brighton that offers free creative writing workshops to schools and a wide range of children, focusing on those most in need.
The idea is to hold workshops for children in a uniquely inspiring and imaginative space that will motivate young children to write.
