If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door

As a community interest company we support the development of out of school provision, youth clubs and youth activities for young people across Sussex.


With the extensive experience of our partners we work to build an understanding of out of school youth provision and youth clubs across East and West Sussex, Brighton and Hove.

What are the needs of youth groups? How do we measure what you do? Where are the gaps where young people have no support?


We believe that every voluntary sector youth provision and youth club need support with safeguarding, compliance and building capacity to work with young people and adult volunteers in communities.

We can help you to build better youth clubs with and for young people.


Working together with young people and in partnership with the National Association of Boys and Girls Clubs we develop county links and associations across Sussex.

Better connected means better support.

We want spaces and places
that we can build together
with young people.

Our mantra is “Building together with young people”. We believe that young people know what they need to build spaces where they can enjoy being young and develop opportunities for themselves.
