Young People’s Centre (YPC)

The YPC is a drop in centre based in Ship Street in the heart of Brighton. It is a safe, social space with a café offering free food, activities and games, and free access to computers and the internet for anyone aged between 13 years and 25.

As well as somewhere to go and socialise with your friends YPC’s Drop-In sessions include support, advice and information, activities and games, a space that facilitates peer support and free access to computers and the internet. Our aim is to develop young people’s ability to live independent healthy lives, to increase their life chances, self-esteem and confidence, to develop social skills, and to increase their chances of gaining employment and qualifications.

Many of the young people who go the YPC overcome very disadvantageous situations and by going to the YPC and meeting the Youth Workers they work together to help everyone reach a positive conclusion. ypc-banner
