Get Involved

Learning and Participation

We want people to be able to learn about our building’s fascinating, hidden heritage and to be able to understand the history of homelessness in Brighton and Hove.

We welcome visits to the building to learn about its history and would like to work with local schools and colleges to provide learning opportunities.

Visits for Community and Local History Groups

We welcome visits to learn about the history of our building and offer talks and tours by arrangement.

These talks and tours take around one hour with tea and coffee provided.

Contribute Your Experience of Homelessness

We want to give people the opportunity to share their experiences of homelessness.

If you would have experience of homelessness in Brighton and Hove either currently or in the past, we would like you to share your story and your experiences.

BHT Client Involvement

If you are a BHT client there are lots of ways for you to get involved with the BHT Heritage Project.

You could help organise events, give talks to the public about the history of our building and join in with a whole range of activities that we have going on.

You can find out about what opportunities are available at BHT’s Client Hub.
