Who is Grandad?
Grandad was a man who would help anyone at any time, inspiring us to do the same. He died helping a lady to carry her shopping up a hill. And although he is now gone, his memory lives on at Grandads Front Room.​

Why is our work so important to us?

We’re passionate about bringing positive change and hope to those that struggle. Our work is important because:

  • We believe Community is at the centre of every happy, cohesive and safe town

  • We want to have a positive effect on our Community for the good of us all 

  • The 2015 Indices of Deprivation show that in most areas across Bognor Regis, the proportion of the population experiencing deprivation related to low income exceeds the national average of 14.5% and far exceeds the West Sussex average of 9.7%
