An Inclusive Fitness accredited facility (IFI) awarded Excellent, ideally suited to support and motivate individuals.

Chailey Heritage Foundation was established by Dame Grace Kimmins. In 1903 she took over a derelict former parish workhouse in rural East Sussex. With her, she brought seven disabled children from East London to their 'place in the country'. A place where they could be cared for, medically treated and educated in what became the first purpose-built school for disabled children in this country.

An Inclusive Fitness accredited facility (IFI) awarded Excellent, ideally suited to support and motivate individuals. Work towards your fitness and rehabilitation goals. Following a physio assessment, their specialist fitness instructors will tailor a training programme, set goals and monitor progress all in a friendly and supportive environment.

All sessions are fully supervised together with affordable monthly packages.

They also offer a wide range of other physical activities including Rebound Therapy, Yoga, swimming sessions in their hydrotherapy pool. Game sessions featuring table cricket, new age kurling, boccia and skittles.

The yoga sessions offer widely acknowledged benefits. You will be guided through a series of gentle stretching movements and breathing exercises helping flexibility, muscle strength, relaxation and much more.

After your session at the gym, why not unwind and enjoy a relaxing session in the pampering spa bath and sauna. Or grab a well-earned coffee break at GK's Café. Other sessions on offer at the Life Skills Centre include arts, ICT, sensory, drama, music therapy or a visit to the farm.
