The Hangleton and Knoll Project - working for a better community


Hangleton and Knoll logo

Welcome to the website of the Hangleton and Knoll Project.

We are a Community Development charity based in the Hangleton and Knoll ward of Brighton and Hove in South East England. A part of the community since 1983 we are a project working for the community with the community and managed by the community.

Right from the start local residents have shaped and developed the project to become what it is today; a model of good practice for how a community is able to develop and manage it's own resources.

This website provides an overview of the Project's aims, our history, some examples of our current activities in the community and contact details should you wish to get in touch with us.

The Hangleton and Knoll send out a regular E Newsletter, "HKP’s What’s on in Hangleton & Knoll", keeping people informed of HKP Service Updates, Events, Activities, Courses and Classes. If you would like to stay informed please subscribe to HKP’s E Newsletter here

Community Development

We’ve been working really hard to transition all our services from groups and face to face to online and phone support.

The Community Development Team have contacted more than 300 of our older and vulnerable service users by telephone checking in with them and asking if they need any help or support.

Youth Work

We are very pleased to announce that the Youth Team are back out and about on detached around Hangleton and Knoll in the afternoons. The main focus of our work for the coming few weeks is to communicate health messages to young people who are street socialising and carry out welfare checks if the need arises. The Youth Team will be based at Knoll Pavilion throughout August, and through the summer we will also be supporting young people to meet again, socially distanced in small groups outside in line with current guidance.

Our Health and Well-Being 121 sessions and REBOOT Coaching sessions are also being made available for outside socially distanced opportunities for those young people that need it. We will be closely following any changes to guidelines and up to date information will be posted on our Facebook pages. We are very much looking forward to seeing young people out and about over the summer.
