ABOUT US

Brighton Greeks was founded in 2014 and is an organisation that has the Greek community’s interest at heart in the wider Brighton area. Brighton Greeks is dedicated to the mission of “creating a home away from home”, by connecting Greeks and Cypriots, organising events and cultural activities as well as offering advice for but not limited to housing and employment opportunities, in order to make the acclimatisation process of immigration as seamless as possible. What makes Brighton Greeks unique are the strong relationships we have actively built and continue to grow with members of the community, local businesses, societies and the Greek Orthodox Church. People truly feel that they have a voice and that their ideas and opinions are valued and heard. We have made giving back an integral part of our organisation with our not-for-profit community activities, our work on humanitarian projects. We always aim to promote and maintain the Hellenic culture, language, history and customs.

WHAT PEOPLE THINK ABOUT US

Ioanna Maria Papadimitropoulou

The best decision I made before I arriving in Brighton was to contact the Brighton Greeks organisation. They responded to all my inquiries promptly and genuinely cared about my smooth integration into this new community. They did not only help me find a flatmate but they also introduced me to amazing people from the community.

Xenios Kyriakides

I must admit that ever since the inception of the Brighton Greeks organisation, there is a much stronger sense of community and connection between us in Brighton. Brighton Greeks have done an amazing job at bringing the community closer together with their cultural activities and the unforgettable Greek club nights.
