Dove Lodge

Dove Lodge, situated close to Littlehampton town centre, provides an exceptional community resource centre. The centre, which was officially opened in October 2002, is run by Dove (Littlehampton) Ltd, a registered charity. Dove Lodge offers affordable, accessible office accommodation for hire or rent to voluntary organisations and community groups. Particular regard is given to those small and emerging groups who need help and support in their embryonic stages. The centre is open to all and everyone is treated with dignity and respect, regardless of race, religion, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, or any other characteristic. The centre provides support to groups in developing trust, communication and co-operative working to allow them to achieve a higher level of partnership working within their sector. An AccessAble Access Guide is available.
