Aspirations was launched in 2017 with the aim of helping participants to feel more confident, less isolated and more able to access the opportunities around them. If you are unemployed, over 25 and feel like your mental health is holding you back, Aspirations can help you get to where you want to be.

Our Coaches can help you reach your goal, whether that’s to improve wellbeing, reduce isolation or access work and training. Our support is free and tailored to you!

SCDA delivers the project across large parts of East Sussex including:

  • Eastbourne
  • Hastings
  • Newhaven
  • Hailsham
  • Uckfield

Whatever your circumstances, we won’t judge you and what we discuss will remain confidential.

Contact us by emailing or by calling 01273 516347.

Alternatively, you can self-refer online by visiting our lead partner’s website –

To date the project has supported 193 participants with over 27% exiting into work, learning or job search.


The impact of Covid has seen us rethink how we deliver the project.  Throughout lockdowns we have continued to support new and existing participants via phone, text, email or video calls.

We’re flexible to our participants needs and will adapt our delivery to make access as easy as possible.

 Aspirations is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund.
