St Anne’s Centre

For homeless or isolated people in Brighton & Hove

Every day, up to 70 homeless, isolated and vulnerable people in our community are welcomed to St Anne’s Centre in Kemptown, Brighton


Saint Anne's Caentre

As often as you did it for one of my least brothers, you did it for me


Staffed largely by volunteers and funded only by donation, St Anne’s has been working with our city’s rough sleepers and marginalised residents for more than thirty years.

St Anne’s offers a safe, warm and welcoming space for all, a place where clients can drop in to eat, relax and find help and solidarity. Each weekday, we provide breakfast and a hot, home-made lunch, and a place where talking and being around other people can help to break through isolation. We firmly believe, however, that relief by itself is never enough.

By listening to our clients and gaining their trust, we try to help them to turn their lives around, sometimes by signposting them to outside agencies for help.

Opening hours: Monday-Friday 9.30am-12.30pm

Life on the streets can be lonely and frightening

Happy Easter everyone

We’ve had a bumper crop of Easter eggs donated this year – many of them from Morrison’s and Pocket Angel. We now have a wall of chocolate at the Centre, ready to go out to our clients and make life that bit sweeter for them all. Thank you, as always, to our friends and supporters.
