Friends Centre works with approximately 1,100 learners each year at our two main learning centres in Brighton at Isetta Square and Ivory Place, and in a range of community venues including children’s centres and community hubs based on estates in the east of the city.

We offer daytime and evening courses in Arts and Crafts, Fashion, Sewing and Textiles, Creative Writing, English, ESOL, Art History, Family Learning, Information Technology, Maths, Modern Foreign Languages and Personal Development.

Friend Centre also coordinates the Migrant English Second Language Hub, delivers ESOL (English for speakers of other languages) provision for the refugee resettlement programme, and the Step by Step programme, supporting homeless and insecurely housed residents with English, Maths and ICT.

We also deliver the Get Socially Active project funded by the European Structural Fund and Big Lottery.
