Have you had enough of seeing people sleeping on our streets?

Working together as a community to end rough sleeping

Be A Part Of Ending Street Homelessness


Galvanise Brighton & Hove is a community-led campaign with local people working together to end rough sleeping

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 trained community volunteers went out in small teams 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 solutions.

The videos below show what happens on Connections Week and how our amazing volunteers felt about their experiences in 2017.

Pledge your support to the Galvanise Brighton & Hove Campaign

One of the key aims of the GalvaniseBH campaign is to better galvanise the support of the wider community in helping tackle the problem of rough sleeping on our streets.

The campaign so far has shown that people in Brighton and Hove want to engage with this important issue, and we now want to turn hundreds of supporters into thousands. The more people that pledge their support, the more influence the campaign is likely to have, and the more we can do to end street homelessness.  

What pledging your support means:

1.       That you identify strongly with the vision of the campaign that no one should need to sleep rough in our City by 2020

2.      That you are happy for us to hold your email contact details and keep you informed as the campaign develops

3.      That when we speak out and look to have influence on the issue of rough sleeping in the City, you are happy to be counted as a supporter of GalvaniseBH
