'Up My Street' - Brighton

'Up My Street' project is delivered by the Phoenix Gallery in collaboration with the Phoenix Tenant Resident’s Association (TRA) based in central Brighton.

This project is making a step change in the environment of Phoenix Estate for residents by connecting and working with the Phoenix Gallery for the benefit of the Hyde community. The project aims to improve places and spaces that matter to the residents through a series of projects with the view to developing a long-term local offer through a six-month consultation with residents.

The project provides activities to increase confidence in young people by increasing skills and their capabilities through art classes, a local food bank managed by the TRA is currently supporting over 25 Hyde families a week by providing Family Art Packs to assist children’s learning.

The Social Prescribing project - Chichester

The Social Prescribing project is hosted by Chichester District Council in partnership with Hyde Foundation and other local organisations. These include GP practices in the north and south of the district, plus the local NHS, West Sussex County Council, local housing associations and voluntary groups.

The service aims to support Hyde residents who attend local GP practices. GPs have identified that 70% of their patients also have issues that need a community-based solution and they attend appointments because they don’t know where else to go. The Social Prescribing team provide longer term (up to 6 sessions) support where they work to empower people to find long term solutions. The Social Prescribers are based in the GP practices and cover the whole district including Chichester City, Petworth and Midhurst in the parts of rural areas, such as Tangmere, Southbourne and Selsey.
