The Clock Tower Sanctuary, the only day centre in Brighton & Hove which supports homeless young people aged 16-25 years-old, has been awarded £110,00 from one of the UK’s largest charitable funders, The Garfield Weston Foundation.
The funding will enable the charity to undertake a much-needed refurbishment, including the installation of a larger, open-plan kitchen, better bathroom facilities and more washer/driers. The Weston Anniversary Fund was launched to provide funding to charities to improve their existing facilities or provide new ones as part of the Foundation’s 60th year.
Frances Duncan, Chief Executive of The Clock Tower Sanctuary, says: “Our day centre receives over 4,000 visits a year and we are seeing younger, more vulnerable homeless people in critical states of crisis than ever before. So, we were over the moon when we heard our application to the Weston Anniversary Fund had been successful.
“The outstanding generosity of the Garfield Weston Foundation will help us to ensure that many more homeless young people are encouraged, supported, challenged and inspired to develop their full potential and transform their lives.”
