Responding to the Covid-19 crisis

June 2020

If you are 16-25 years old and need help - following Government guidance, we are running our service remotely, with our team of Support Coordinators available to provide practical and emotional support, over the phone, email and on our client Facebook pages. 

You can reach us between 9am to 3pm Monday to Friday and 10am to 4pm on Saturdays. We can organise food parcels and other essentials like clothing and toiletries and help you feel less isolated during this time. Anyone in Brighton & Hove who is aged 16 to 25 years old and homeless/insecurely housed can call us on 07930 050820 or 01273 722 353.

If you are a supporter and would like to help us - we are a small charity and rely entirely on donations to keep our services running. Many of our fundraising events have been cancelled and more look uncertain to go ahead. We would be very grateful for any support that you can offer us by donating here. We appreciate every penny! Thank you. 

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', as well as 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.

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.

“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.”

The latest news

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 ...
