The day centre
The Clock Tower Sanctuary is a place in central Brighton which is specially for young people who are homeless or insecurely housed.
What it's like here
The Clock Tower Sanctuary is a friendly place where you can relax and do day-to-day things that can be tough when you don't have a place to call home like cooking, showering and laundry.
We can also support you with things like getting sorted with a doctor, benefits and finding a job. The day centre is somewhere you can relax and be yourself. It's warm, friendly and we have a great team of supportive staff and volunteers who can help you get the help you need.
Due to COVID-19, our service is a bit more limited at the moment. We are open on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday offering food to take away, hot drinks, limited access to the showers and laundry as well as storage and use of the computers. We are hoping to get our classes up and running again soon. Case working continues for clients as usual.
Please call 01273 722 353 and select option 1 to book a slot to visit us between 11am and 2.45pm.
We have showers, clean towels and toiletries available for use between 10am-2pm.
You can do your laundry during and get some warm, clean clothing.
A fully-stocked kitchen
A hot lunch is made here every day and you can make your own meals too. We can also help with a food parcel if you need one.
Computers and wifi
You can check your email, look for jobs, work on your CV, stay in touch with people, register for benefits or anything else you need to do.
We run a different activity every day like music, massage, yoga, fitness and more. Scroll down the page to see what's on.
And one to one support...
Our Support Co-ordinators can put you in touch with other services like mental health, substance misuse and the doctor and help you look for housing, training and jobs.
"The Clock Tower Sanctuary is a like a family, there's nowhere else like it. I’ve done fantastic activities and have really picked myself up emotionally. The food is also life-saving. There were days when I didn’t have much of it while running out of money, but I knew I could come here to eat, take care of myself and others and feel better."
