Our story

The Pavilion is designed and created on the wishes and needs of the local community.  An extensive study of those living in the area showed that the services most needed were a café, and somewhere to care for their health. So that is what we created. A space where all bodies are welcome. A community to be a part of, and a collective effort to develop our mental and physical health, to feel better, and more connected. The Pavilion is part of Chichester Community Development Trust (CCDT) and we are a registered charity. 100% of any surplus raised goes onto fund projects and activities in our community

The mind and body are not separate, what affects one, affects the other. So CCDT created a space that would care for both, focusing on health from a bigger perspective and aiming to address the many different aspects of health.

Classes and therapies are provided by independent experts from the Chichester district, bringing together the strongest team of practitioners that can care for your mind and body. 

All the practitioners at the Pavilion share our vision and our three main values; Mind body health, Paying it forward and Community.

We can only hire this space for private birthday parties in conjunction with one of approved Forest School leaders (please get in touch if you would like their contact details).

*In addition to the hire cost, we ask that you sign up to our principle ‘of paying it forward’, ensuring that we can care for mental and physical health of everybody, including those currently unable to fund spaces in classes or therapy sessions. This will look different for everyone so please discuss with the Pavilion team.
