Cooking & fitness courses

We offer a diverse range of FREE courses in Newhaven, Peacehaven and Hailsham to help improve fitness and nutrition for all ages and abilities. They are in small groups and run by our capable and approachable team of tutors. Please call us for further information on 01273 516032.


Did you know that with simple changes to diet and lifestyle you can improve your health and reduce your chances of developing cancer, heart disease and type 2 diabetes? At SCDA we provide FREE training for community members living or working in East Sussex. You will receive a CPD certificate and it is the equivalent of 3 CPD points.

Within one short training session you will learn how lifestyle choices affect health, why good communication is so important when supporting others, how to find your motivation and the importance of goal setting.

Our next course runs from 9.30am-12.30pm on 23rd May at Peacehaven Meridian Centre, Meridian Way, Peacehaven BN10 8BB (Copper Room).
