About us

Wave Active is an award-winning charity and social enterprise, supporting local communities with facilities, activities, and services to inspire active lifestyles.

At Wave Active our purpose is “Inspiring Active Lifestyles” and vision, “To be at the heart of the improvement of health and wellbeing in the Community”.

Managing 15 leisure facilities and Newhaven Fort, across the Lewes District and Eastbourne Borough of East Sussex we are passionate about providing opportunities that support individuals to gain, regain or maintain: health, fitness, and wellbeing.

Offering a range of activities across our facilities and multifunctional spaces, our team is dedicated to creating an approachable environment enabling individuals to prioritise their health and wellbeing journey.

As a charity, formed in 2006, Wave Active continues to ensure all surplus revenues generated from activities are reinvested back into the community in the form of: facility developments, refurbishments, employment opportunities, new programmes of activity and to support those with health conditions to make health improvements.

We continue to invest in our facilities, expanding services across all our sites. This has included investment in health improvement services and the creation of Wave Active Health.

Wave Active Health continues to develop opportunities to support those with diagnosed health conditions; physical, mental or emotional, to gain, regain or maintain an individual’s health and well-being, through specific health condition-based classes, such as Referral Pilates, Referral Spin and Referral Yoga as well as small group training in the gym specifically for those with health conditions and falls prevention, cardiac, stroke and pulmonary rehab with expert support and guidance from our own Health Improvement Practitioners.
