Winter Appeal 

It's been a really tough year for everyone. Could you help make it a little brighter for young people who are experiencing homelessness?

A little light in the dark

By donating to our Winter Appeal, you could give a young homeless person a Christmas meal in warmth and safety – and the support they need over the winter months. And you could also give them hope; and the chance of a better life next year when the pandemic recedes.

As the only drop-in day centre in Brighton & Hove specifically for 16-25 year-olds, young people experiencing homelessness know they can find a warm welcome and the practical support they need at The Clock Tower Sanctuary.

A gift of £18 could pay for a Christmas meal and a gift box for a young person to enjoy.

A donation of £48 could fund a case-work session for a young person where they can talk to someone who will listen, understand and help.

A pledge of £96 could fund a day with a Support Coordinator, giving a young person the practical support they need to start a better life in 2021.

A gift of £1,529 could fund The Clock Tower Sanctuary’s work for a whole day this winter.

Last year, we worked with 186 young people who had nowhere else to turn. As a small charity, we rely on the generosity of our supporters to keep our services running. You can see read about how your donation makes a difference to our clients on the Stories page.

"I had been renting a flat but when I lost my job, I couldn’t afford to pay the rent. I have no family around, so I started sofa surfing with friends, but after a while I ran out of people to stay with and spent two weeks rough sleeping. It was really scary. I slept under bridges, in parks. But I didn’t really sleep, I couldn’t…I relied a lot on The Clock Tower Sanctuary for food and having somewhere you feel safe. When I had nowhere to go, I could come here and eat amazing food and have people to talk to. ”
