We have only gone and done it!

Daryl Baker (Managing Director of Technologies and Solutions Limited) and Sarah Collins are delighted to announce the exciting next steps in the development of Creative Beatz, a not-for-profit initiative in support of disadvantaged young people in Chichester.

Passionate about helping young people find their place in society, Sarah has spent over a decade working in youth centres, schools and alternative provision settings. In that time, the lack of support and assistance for people with a creative nature, particularly those struggling with the academic side of learning, was always apparent.

Determined to make a change, Sarah decided on a concept to provide a safe space to encourage creativity, inclusivity and ultimately offer vital support in securing employment opportunities.

Daryl, after learning about Sarah’s longstanding vision, was inspired to help her make it a reality with an offer to fund the first year of operation in its entirety. This included setting up a registered charity, procuring and renovating a suitable premises and managing the intricacies all not-for-profits need to effectively run. All this and still finding time to lend a hand as the on-site handyman, tech support expert, trainee barista and Mr. Motivator!

Based in the heart of Chichester, Creative Beatz now takes residence across two floors of a multi-storey building at 33 South Street. Our café on the ground floor offers coffee and community to the general public, while our learning centre above provides an environment for young people to flourish through our various education projects and drop-in support sessions.

As a newly established not-for-profit organisation, we rely solely on profits made through our café and donations from the public and supporting companies to deliver our invaluable youth support.

Donations are gratefully welcomed in any form – be it a monetary contribution, catering equipment or general art supplies, please do get in touch.

If you would like to express your support, we have also set up a GoFundMe page at

Please be sure to check our website and our social media for further announcements, and we look forward to welcoming you in the near future for coffee and cake, pizza and paninis, and helping us finally deliver vital change where it’s needed most.
