Responding to the Covid-19 crisis

26 March 2020

Following new Government guidance, from Friday 27 March we will no longer be working from First Base and our Support Co-ordinators will be moving to a phone-based support model.

We are committed to providing as much assistance for our clients as we possibly can. So from Monday 30 March we will be operating a 7 day a week service with CTS staff being available between 10am–4pm for advice and general well being check-ins. Anyone in Brighton & Hove who is homeless and aged 16 to 25 years old can reach us on 07930 050820.

We are a small charity and rely entirely on donations to keep our services running. Some of our fundraising events have already 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.

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 a new pair of shoes for a young person to wear to a job interview.

“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.”
