Have you had enough of seeing people sleeping on our streets?
Working together as a community to end rough sleeping
Galvanise Brighton & Hove is a community-led campaign with local people working together to end rough sleeping.
The aim is that no-one has the need to sleep rough in Brighton and Hove by 2020.
Galvanise Brighton & Hove (GalvaniseBH) is part of the European Campaign to End Street Homelessness, coordinated by World Habitat, and currently operating in 10 European cities. The project has seen over 1,000 volunteers survey rough sleepers in cities across Europe, from Valencia to London.
At the end of 2017, 160 community volunteers in Brighton and Hove spoke to rough sleepers about their lives, hopes and aspirations. The purpose was to ensure that the views of homeless people feed into service redesign and to bring together different sections of society to discuss innovative housing solutions.
