Help us to raise funds supporting Downs View School and Link College, Brighton. For pupils with severe learning difficulties aged 4–19.

The Friends of Downs View School & Link College has been established since 1992 and as a Charity supports Downs View School and Downs View Link College. The committee consists of Parents, Carers, Staff and Friends and is run entirely on a voluntary basis.

The Aims are to fund raise for extra or specialist equipment, provide social activities for the students and their families, instigate fund raising activities and other events, i.e. training for the Parents/Carers and Pupils of the school. Money raised is invested in the school and link college for the benefit of the students. We assist with the provision of educational facilities which are not funded by the Local Education Authority. We also liaise and develop partnerships with local companies, charities and community groups to benefit the pupils at the school and the link college.

You can use this site to see what the latest news from the Friends is, find out about upcoming events, have a look at some our pictures, and you can get in touch with the Friends Of Downs View, if you want to get involved.
