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

What’s cooking?

We’ve had a busy summer at St Anne’s, serving hundreds of hot lunches every week, mostly as takeaways (always with goodie bags, home-made puds and plenty of treats). As ever, we can only do this with the hard-work and commitment of our loyal band of volunteers. Each and every one of them is an important…

Hello Brighton!

St Anne’s staff and volunteers were out in force for the Community Charity Day at Royal Pavilion Gardens at the weekend. We shared a stall with our friends from the Somerset Centre, with a really successful tombola and a brilliant cake sale to raise funds for both organisations. Will wore our Team T-shirt (if anyone…
