Our day centre
We are here for you if you are 16-25 and rough sleeping, 'sofa surfing' or living in temporary or emergency housing. A hot lunch is available on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays between 12:30-1:30pm. If you are experiencing street homelessness or rough sleeping, you can access the centre from 10.30am.
You can use our shower & laundry facilities or take part in daily classes and activities. Food parcels are also available.
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.”
