Healthy Living

Our experienced teams offer a wide range of services to support the health and well-being of local people. Easy to access and enjoyable courses and activities encourage anyone to take part – from community gardening to health walks, from cooking healthily to fun Zumba sessions.

Working with local people, the local NHS CCG have launched a new project with initiatives to improve health and wellbeing in Newhaven and Peacehaven – for more information see this website: We deliver a wide range of courses and activities in the Havens and wider area. If you would like to receive a quarterly email with course dates and venues and our newsletter please use the enquiry form on the left hand menu and we will send out the current and future lists to you. 

Did you know that SCDA provides FREE health checks?
