How your contribution makes a difference

Shockingly, in the UK, the average life expectancy of a male rough sleeper is just 47 years old and just 43 for women.
(Crisis ‘Homelessness Kills’ 2011).

We work with young people who are at a critical period in their transition to adulthood to prevent them from becoming part of this horrifying statistic. We can only do this with your support.

177

young people benefited from day centre support in 2016

4,454

was the number of hot meals cooked together with young people

1,144

was the number of hot showers taken at the day centre.

31

young people got off the street and moved into accommodation
 

We are needed more than ever

We anticipate these numbers will increase due to issues such as welfare reform and the housing crisis in Brighton and Hove.

Please donate today and help us continue to support
homeless young people get back on track.

Every young person deserves a safe place to go.

 
 
  • I feel safe and comfortable

    “Some services will provide warmth and food but The Sanctuary is so much more than that. I felt safe and comfortable in myself. For the first time I could concentrate on sorting myself out and working out what I needed to do.”

  • The Sanctuary gave me hope

    “I was on a path to self-destruction and quite frankly I would have been dead by now without The Sanctuary. Some of my friends didn’t make it and I would have been there with them right now. The Sanctuary gave me hope and that’s priceless.”
