Friends Centre have been a great venue for running our NHS group. The room is always prepared on time and the staff here have been really helpful. Staff are always around to approach if needed.

 

B&H Wellbeing Group (NHS)

A great location, close to parking in Brighton. The welcome was friendly & professional. The facilities were great with the use of computer & Smart Board. We would use the venue again.

Albion in the Community

 

Everyone was so helpful and it made training here so less stressful – from the beginning phone call – to just now at the end – it has been the best venue we have used to deliver our training. Delegates said it was the best food they had ever had at a training day!! I wish we could carry on at Friends Centre but we’re on the train to elsewhere now. I hope we come back here!!

NIA Ending Violence Against Women and Children

What a great venue! So convenient by train and car.

 

Brighton Early Music Festival

FTM Brighton

I’ve been really happy with the facilities provided at the Friends Centre. Everything has been just as we need it, and staff are friendly and welcoming, ready to offer help when needed. Thanks very much!

Step Up Japanese

Great venue, great location, friendly staff.

Greenpeace

Friendliness & efficiency were evident right from my initial enquiry about room hire, throughout the booking process and on the day of the meeting itself. The rooms are light and spacious but the Centre doesn’t have the clinical feel of some new builds, and the ambiance is a very positive one. Its central location, close to the station, makes it a very convenient venue and I’ll definitely be booking it again!

Rachel Mapson - BSL/English Interpreter

A sanctuary for training; clear, calm, caring and comfortable.

Sussex Counselling and Psychotherapy

Lovely venue and the staff were very helpful. Fabulous!

China UK Culture and Commerce Association Ltd

Thank you very much to all the team at Friends Centre for all your help in making sure our English language and cultural studies course ran smoothly. The teaching rooms were fully equipped, very clean and well set out making an ideal learning environment for our students. The building is easy to get to with plenty of parking nearby and is very quiet which helps make it an ideal place to study. Once again thank you to all the team for all your help. We look forward to returning to teach more courses soon!

Salmantica Cours

The venue was perfect. We loved the ecological aspects of the building. Staff were very accommodating and ensured the day was a huge success.

The WordTherapy Centre

We are always looking for good quality & well managed venues for our community courses and the Friends Centre exceeded all our expectations. The room was excellently equipped with everything we required and it was lovely to be able to turn up and find the room exactly as we wanted it. Staff were incredibly friendly & helpful and all this enabled us to have a smooth and enjoyable training session. Thank you!

Sussex Community NHS Trust

A very reliable and well-maintained venue: we regularly use the Friend’s Centre for a variety of functions and services, as it is also very reasonably priced/competitive. The staff are organised and able to give flexible options, and are happy to help solve problems.

Ed Huxley Local People Programme

Thank you for the flexibility in helping us to run our first course here – timing, allowing us to cater for ourselves, space for our people to work on their own – crucial for planning their micro teaching for the next day!
