The 1 Market Square Project...

The 1 Market Square project was established in 1999 to improve the quality of life for young people aged 11 to 25 years in Hailsham.

The complex, owned and funded by Hailsham Town Council, accommodates a café-style meeting place (Square Youth Cafe), an information drop-in facility (Infopoint).

The Square Youth Cafe...

The Square Youth Cafe, managed by Hailsham Town Council, aims to provide a service to young people enabling them to develop social, physical, emotional and political awareness.

Regardless of background, gender or culture, young people can expect a safe, supportive, fun and non-judgmental environment.
