Based in Brighton and Hove, the Pebble Trust is set up to provide support for local causes and local people. Since 2009, we have made donations to numerous local charities and have successfully launched the Pebble Trust Talent Grants scheme, which provides financial assistance to local young people, enabling them to develop exceptional talents.


We make donations to local Brighton & Hove organisations which are involved, for example, in education, care, community, heritage and the arts.

For the past seven years, we have been the main charitable supporter of Brighton Fringe. We are continuing the relationship this year.

We give talent grants to young people from Brighton and Hove in order for them to develop a particular gift. This may be in the field of sport, music, the arts or academia.


This short film highlights The Pebble Trust’s talent grant scheme in action. It features six of our grant recipients – and makes us very proud to support young people living in Brighton & Hove!
