Brighton Independent

By: John Campbell

The Brighton Community Resource Centre, which held its official opening last week, is a one-stop location for people of all ages to make use of affordable recreation, education, employment and workplace training resources.

Community Living Campbellford/Brighton invested in the centre to deliver services not currently offered in the community, from computer courses to kids’ crafts, from Loyalist College lifelong learning classes about art, music, Spanish and etiquette, to one-day health and safety workshops.

“It’s been quite a journey,” said Community Living board president John Mood at the opening held October 29. “We’ve come a long way.”

Mood admitted he wasn’t sure at first about the site that had been chosen for the resource centre, the former home of the Brighton Independent, at 1 Young Street, which the agency purchased in 2012, but he was impressed by the “hard work” that had gone into converting the building.

Executive director Nancy Brown said the initiative aligns with Community Living’s vision for “a fully inclusive community for people with intellectual disabilities … a community that looks after each other.” The resource centre “gives us that opportunity to provide many different things for many different people, without labels attached.”
