The Brighton & Hove Youth Collective

What is the Brighton and Hove Youth Collective?

The Brighton and Hove Youth Collective is an organisation which is made up of eight youth groups which support young people across Brighton and Hove. They are  the: 

1) The Young People's Centre (YPC) 

2) Crew Club

3) Deans Youth Project

4) Brighton Youth Centre

5) Tarner Community Project

6) Hangleton and Knoll Project

7) The Trust for Developing Communities

8) Sussex YMCA

They are all also all registered charities.

Impact Initiative is the operational element of the collective. 

These eight groups who previously worked independently have recently changed their approach and now work together to deliver a more efficient and co-ordinated programme of youth activities across Brighton and Hove. The "Youth Collective" delivers a ‘co-produced’ service with projects and programmes to develop and deliver an innovative, co-ordinated and responsive service to better meet the needs of young people living in the city.

What do They Do?

There is a wide range of events and activities happening at any one of these Youth Clubs every night of the week. For example singing and drama at the Deans Youth Project in Woodingdean, skateboarding for girls at Brighton Youth Centre near Edward Street. There's a young women’s group- focusing on mental health at the Hangleton and Knoll project in the west Hove or you can go to various "Drop In" sessions at the Young People's Centre in Ship Street where they discuss and can help on numerous topics.

So if you are, or know someone who is between the ages of 13 and 25 years old who maybe needs advice on a job, a health issue or just finding a nice place to live or something to eat the YPC is there to help. And at different times throughout the year there are also trips, summer camps and parties celebrating Easter and Halloween that young people can join in with, right across The Collective.

In short - The Collective is a great resource when you need someone to talk to or somewhere to go. It is also a great way of connecting, making friends, getting advice  and spending your free time with great people of all agaes.
