Working to help young people in need

Mackley is delighted to provide further support to a charity that works with homeless young people in Brighton & Hove.

The Clock Tower Sanctuary is the city’s only day-centre for young people aged 16-25 years who are homeless or insecurely housed.

The Sanctuary is open six days a week, 300 days a year – and last it received 3,984 visits from young people who had nowhere to call home.

The young people who turn to the sanctuary for help have often ‘fallen through the net’, usually due to family breakdown, leaving care or the end of a relationship.

In 2018, Mackley entered into a partnership with the sanctuary, in a bid to ensure no young person becomes part of Brighton’s long-term homeless population.

Earlier this month, it was able to provide a further donation to support the training of a volunteer who will build on the vital work being carried out by the organisation.

David Knapp, Mackley’s Business Development Manager, said: “The work carried out by The Clock Tower Sanctuary is amazing and incredibly inspiring.

“The Sanctuary offers life-changing, practical support to help young people get back on their feet; along with a listening ear and a friendly face.”
