Free children and young people’s event in city centre

A special free event is being held in central Brighton on Tuesday 23 May showcasing a wide range of local services available to young people, parents and carers.

Brighton & Hove City Council’s base at One Regency Road, off West Street, is opening its doors from 3-6pm. It’s a chance to meet staff, volunteers and service users and speak to them about:

  • the city’s employability service
  • becoming a foster carer or adopting a child
  • apprenticeships
  • under 18s substance misuse service
  • victim work
  • family therapy
  • group work for families experiencing abuse and violence from children towards parents / carers
  • work with young people who offend
  • youth crime prevention
  • social work with adolescents
  • support for those at risk of exploitation.

Award-winning local freestyle rapper Gramski will be performing a short set at 5pm. Coffee is being supplied by local social project Pro Baristas.

The event is being backed by Any Other Business, a collection of local individuals and organisations who want to open the door on the social good going on in and around Brighton & Hove.
