The Hangleton and Knoll Project - working for a better community

Youth Work

Young people using a climbing wall

The Hangleton and Knoll Project is based in the west of the city close to Hove, providing activities for anyone between the ages of 13-25 years old, mainly at no cost.

Our youth work team supports young people using a variety of different methodologies. One key activity is Detached work, in which teams of two youth workers walk around the neighbourhood engaging with young people out on the street and in the local parks. We work with them around any issues, thoughts, ideas they may need support with. A part of this work also involves signposting young people onto other services. The benefits of engaging with these young people on their own territory are that we are able to make contact and build relationships with individuals who do not always access more mainstream youth provision. This kind of regular contact in the long term allows us to empower and support them to have their voices heard within the wider community setting.

Another method in which the Youth Team supports young people is by empowering them to plan and establish their own groups and projects, with the longer term aim of these groups becoming self-supporting. The Youth Team also supports young people to plan and deliver Holiday Activities and annual residential trips.

What we do

There are loads of projects and activities on offer for young people every day of the week and by also working in partnership with many different organisations they constantly put on some great sessions and projects. Here's a few:

The Hangleton & Knoll Project exists to work in partnerships with young residents to access and develop opportunities and resources and to facilitate positive change as identified by the residents of our communities.
