Family Activities

18 March 2020

Coronavirus (Covid 19):

SCDA are working hard to ensure we minimise any risks of Covid 19 to the people who access our services, staff and volunteers.  We are following the latest guidance  from government to ensure our staff, volunteers and service users stay safe and healthy. 

We continue to maintain our service delivery, where possible and we are adapting delivery so that we can continue to help local people. We will advise of any changes and reductions to our services, for example telephone appointments. 

For latest advice from NHS


We offer a wide range of activities for children up to 8 years old and their parents/carers. We actively seek to identify the gaps in local provision by listening to community need, by attending local events and working in partnership with Newhaven Families Forum, schools and community groups.

Many of our courses have a free creche facility, which are run by qualified childcare staff meeting Ofsted’s high standard. We offer a great range of FREE activities for families in Newhaven:
