GK's Café is a charity-run establishment within Chailey Heritage Foundation, a disability charity in the heart of the Sussex countryside.

Named after the founder of Chailey Heritage Foundation, Dame Grace Kimmins, GK's Café is a great place for customers of the Life Skills Centre to have lunch, a snack or even just a coffee. GK's is also open to the wider community, with or without a disability. Any café profits are used to pay for equipment in the Life Skills Centre which has a wheel-chair friendly gym, spa and sauna, disability-friendly ICT, cookery and arts sessions plus much more... 

If you're passing along the A272 between Haywards Heath and Uckfield, call in. Parking is free, so is Wi-Fi, and a warm welcome awaits!
