Whitehawk Inn

BHT’s Whitehawk Inn is a friendly community centre providing a range of courses, services and support.

Our services are focused on the needs of those living in Whitehawk and East Brighton but we welcome everyone into the centre, to visit or participate in any of our activities.

Our latest brochure is packed with details of upcoming courses, workshops and support groups, many of which are free to take part in.

Adult Education & Training

Why not enrol on one of our courses?

If you want to learn a new skill or start a hobby, we offer a variety of courses to suit different tastes: from art courses, to languages to IT skills.

We also offer a selection of free drop-in clubs and groups including Drama, Games and Knitting.

We can organise free or low-cost childcare and help with course costs and travel fees.

Information, Advice and Guidance

The Whitehawk Inn provides Careers Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) about learning, volunteering and work, as well as a range of support activities for adults.

Our qualified careers advisors can work holistically with you to identify your work and learning goals; find the information you need to plan and support your next steps. Whether you are looking for a career change or wanting to go back to work, step-by-step support is available.

As part of the Moneyworks project, we offer free one-to-one appointments with our Advisor to discuss ways to save and manage your money. This includes budgeting and online banking.

Our advisor can also arrange appointments with specialist agencies for further expert advice.

The Whitehawk Inn provides services beyond being a local community support service and adult education centre.

Helen was referred to us by the Discretionary Payment team at Brighton and Hove City Council.  She wanted advice on how to reduce her deficit monthly budget. A significant rent increase had caused a monthly deficit.

In Helen's support session, we completed a monthly budget planner. We then discussed options available to her to reduce the deficit, including income maximisation (for example, renting out her second bedroom, working part time, and downsizing) and reducing outgoings such as cheaper utility bills, water etc., and grants which she may be eligible for through the Council, Turn2Us and utility trust funds.
