The Brighton Dolphin Project is incredibly fortunate to have received funding that has developed the Project into what it is today. We are thankful to the following organisations and companies for their support in our work.
Rampion Offshore Wind Farm
Rampion Offshore Wind Farm is a new wind farm development that was commissioned in April 2018. The 116 turbines are more than 8 miles offshore from Brighton. They provided the initial funding for us to develop the Discovery Centre, and we have forged a strong relationship with the company that developed the wind farm. The Brighton Dolphin Project is discussing opportunities to further our work with them, such as running cruises to the wind farm.
Sussex Community Foundation
Sussex Community Foundation provides funding to local charities across East and West Sussex and Brighton & Hove. Since 2006, the organisation has raised over £30 million to support communities within the Sussex area. Alongside Rampion, the Foundation provided the project funding so that we could develop the Discovery Centre, and begin to develop the foundations for our work within Sussex.
Ernest Cook Trust
Ernest Cook Trust is one of the UK’s leading outdoor learning charities. Rooted in the conservation and management of the countryside, the Trust actively encourages children and young people to learn from the land through hands-on outdoor-learning opportunities on its estates and by offering grants.
Ernest Kleinwart Charitable Trust
Founded on 12th March 1963, the trust was set up so that Ernest and his family could devote time and resources to charitable activities. Ernest had two great passions in life: conservation of wildlife and the natural environment and the encouragement of youth enterprise and outdoor activity.
Situated in the heart of Brighton, Infinity Foods is a thriving worker co-operative dedicated to the provision of an extensive range of 100% vegetarian foods since 1971.

As part of their work supporting grassroots organisations, Lush created body creams known as Charity Pots, where funds sold from these products are donated to charities and other good causes including animal protection, human rights and conserving the environment.
One of the UK’s leading supermarkets, Waitrose supported us through their Community Matters Fund during September 2018. £1000 is split between 3 charities within the local community, and the BDP received over £500 in funding.
