Going on the trips [...] is really good 'cos we choose them and so we know they aren't going to be lame" young woman, aged 15, Moulsecoomb

Current Projects

  • Developing partnerships for effective and efficient youth work.  For example the annual ‘Wild Park Youth Festival’ is co-ordinated by the Trust for Developing Communities and involves over 20 partners in providing a fun festival to hundreds of local people.
  • Friday Night Sports Hub – between 30 and 50 young people attend this project weekly at Moulsecoomb Leisure Centre.  In partnership with Brighton & Hove City Council’s Sports Development Team and Albion in the Community.
  • Thursday Night Youth Club – Run in partnership with the Young People’s Centre we open the 67 Centre in Moulsecoomb each Thursday and work with the young people to plan activities and trips.
  • Bike Club – At this project young people learn bike mechanics whilst ‘on the job’. An hours work on our bikes earns them £5 credit which they can put towards bike related parts or accessories.  Many save up to buy whole bikes from the project.

More about our projects

  • The BevenTEEN bulletin is a local newsletter colour supplement that forms part of the quarterly Bevendean Bulletin community newsletter. It is delivered to over 1500 properties in the area and is written and edited by local young people.  It aims to give local young people the opportunity to speak their minds about current affairs and issues affecting them whilst supporting journalistic skills development.
  • Bevendean Activities Group – this group is made up of teenagers who make their own decisions on how to run the Bevendean Summer Programme each year (since 2007).  Yearly, they raise about £5,000 which they keep in their own group bank account.  They even started a small business to bring in more money, called Fruitcycle.
  • Bevendean Young Women’s Group is a project that has involved anywhere between 10 and 25 young women weekly in fun activities relating to their identities and issues.  They produce work annually that is submitted to the ‘B.Fest’ youth arts festival and generally have a great time!
