St Anne’s Centre

For homeless or isolated people in Brighton & Hove

Every day, up to 50 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

We’ve got a brand new toaster…

Our fab new toaster is working hard at the Centre. The old one eventually gave up the ghost after many years of sterling service. Toast is one of the small pleasures at St Anne’s – we serve it with jam, marmalade, Marmite, sometimes with cheese, eggs, ham, but always with a smile. Commercial toasters are…

Hot news from the kitchen…

As St Anne’s volunteers all know, we have struggled for some time with our sturdy old stove – and many will be delighted to hear that we now have a brand new commercial convection oven and three snazzy induction hobs. It will be so much easier, quicker, safer and more efficient to cook lunch for…
