Brighton & Hove has had a specialist homeless surgery since 1998 when, in response to rising numbers of people experiencing homelessness in the city, Dr Chris Sargeant opened a pioneering health facility in the School Clinic on Morley Street.
Arch Health CIC was set up by clinicians and professionals of Brighton & Hove as a Community Interest Company to address the health needs of people experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity in the city. In 2016 Arch took over the running of the Morley Street GP surgery and the homeless health engagement service for Brighton & Hove.
The Brighton and Hove Common Ambition project is steered by people with lived experience of homelessness, in order to drive improvements to homeless healthcare across the city. We also work with frontline providers and commissioners in order to improve health services and outcomes for people experiencing homelessness in Brighton & Hove. This large-scale, city-wide partnership, funded thanks to a grant from the Health Foundation, will transform healthcare for people facing homelessness in our city, through co-production.
Everyone is really kind and they never make me feel judged. They help my anxiety.
