The Story of the Youth Collective – Community, Collaboration, Citizens and Culture

Youth Collective 12-17 Report Cover

Between Oct 2012 and Sept 2017 the Brighton & Hove Youth Collective consisted of 8 community and voluntary sector organisations: Brighton Youth Centre, The Crew Club, The Deans Youth Project, Hangleton & Knoll Project, Tarner Community Project, The Trust for Developing Communities, YMCA Downslink and the Young People’s Centre (YPC).

It was commissioned by Brighton and Hove City Council to deliver universal youth work across the city to young people aged 13-19, and up to 25 with SEND (special educational needs and disability), against a number of targets and outcomes for young people under the overall strategic outcomes of ‘Young people are able to enjoy their leisure time’ and ‘Young people have the opportunity to be active citizens and shape the services that affect their lives’.

The Youth Collective worked collaboratively with each other and other organisations in the city to run events and put on activities for young people; everything from local community events to city wide events like the B.fest youth arts festival, which is part of Brighton Fringe Festival.
