Our day centre
Day Centre Opening Hours - Covid 19
We are currently open on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday between 10.30am-12.30pm and 1pm-2.30pm. The centre is CLOSED on Wednesdays and Sundays.
We are unable to run a drop-in service at the moment so please call 01273 722 353 and choose option 1 to book yourself a slot - as we can only have a certain number of people visiting at one time.
If you are rough sleeping we can offer food to take away, hot drinks, use of the washing machines and showers, storage and use of the computers. Please remember to bring your mask, or we can give you one when you arrive.
What we do
We work with young homeless people to give them space, support & stability
We provide a space for 16-to-25-year olds who are homeless where they can feel safe and 'just be', whilst also getting access to services and support.
We provide the everyday things that young homeless people need, like somewhere to shower, do laundry, eat a healthy meal, use computers and get post.
By helping to meet these practical needs, young homeless people can focus on their futures and potential.
If you are a supporter and would like to help us, thank you! We are a small charity and rely entirely on donations to keep our services running. Many of our fundraising events have been cancelled this year so we would be very grateful for any support you can offer us by donating here. We appreciate every penny! Thank you.
We are the only drop-in day centre in Brighton & Hove for 16-to-25 year olds who are homeless or insecurely housed. We provide practical and emotional support to help young people to move from crisis to stability.
Discover Dandi's story
Dandi first came to the day centre with her brother, as she was too nervous to come on her own. Like many young people we support, she had become homeless as relations with her mum had deteriorated to the point where she could no longer live at home.
Could you help us by making a one-off or regular gift? You can offer a lifeline to a young person who has nowhere else to turn. Thank you!
Could pay to top up a client's phone, so that we can stay in touch with them during the Covid-19 crisis.
Could pay for cooking equipment and some food supplies for a young person living in temporary accommodation.
Could pay for a Support Coordinator to spend a few hours with a young person who is having a really difficult time.
“The Clock Tower Sanctuary meets your basic needs and that allows you to get organised and to try and get a job. Otherwise, you are in a fight or flight survival mode and you can very easily spiral down, becoming depressed and lonely. It’s exhausting.”

What have young people been telling us about lockdown?
June 2020 – as the lockdown began, our clients who were rough sleeping were quickly triaged into accommodation with little time to prepare themselves. Some were placed in unfamiliar parts of Brighton and some further away in Newhaven or Eastbourne. Many told us they were pleased to be accommodated but found this new, unplanned change of circumstances difficult. They didn’t ...
