Chapel Park Community Centre offers a variety of services to support people in the local community, including funded educational and wellbeing courses.
We are a not for profit registered charity, run for the benefit of the local community, based right in the heart of St Leonards - beneath the Baptist Church on Chapel Park Road.
We have an IT cafe, offering free access to the internet, printers and photocopier, as well as a large main hall, meeting rooms and a fully fitted kitchen to hire. Click link here to see pictures and details.
We are currently raising funds to help us to deliver a programme of funded courses in the New Year and will post details in January.
Cases of Covid are currently very high in the area, so if you're planning on paying us a visit please read our attached Visitors Policy beforehand (Click Here), as this includes our current safety measures
to help keep our community safe.
We are showing an exhibition of our community art classes, with some paintings and cards available to buy.
For anyone wanting to visit to take a look, please let us know beforehand, so we can confirm if the hall is free.
Hastings Advice and Representation Centre (HARC) provide specialist Welfare Benefits Advice to all. If you need any help with Universal Credit and/or Online Benefits please click here to find places offering in-person drop-in times and appointments.
We have linked in with Diversity Resource International, who are working with Care for the Carers (East Sussex), to set up a peer support group at the Centre for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic carers, who face additional barriers when accessing support.
If you are from a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Background and look after a family member, neighbour or friend, please get in touch with DRI at email@example.com, or you're welcome to send me an email at courses.CPCC@outlook.com.
We have recently decorated our outside space to offer time to sit and reflect and enjoy our new planting.
We have also made some changes to our IT cafe to make it more comfortable, offering free access to the internet, printers and photocopier.
Our updated Cafe is now open, serving a selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks to enjoy, at affordable prices.
We have a number of rooms to hire, which are fully accessible by stairs or lift, including a fully fitted kitchen and sports hall - for details and photos please see our Facilities page, or use this link.
In addition to our funded courses, we are planning to run some events and workshops to help bring the community together after these difficult times.
Before you pay us a visit, please take a look at our Visitors Policy, which helps us to provide a safe environment at this time.
We very much look forward to seeing you at the Centre soon.
