Meeting Room Hire

Why hire space at Sussex MS Centre?
We are situated at the heart of Southwick's Recreation Ground, a green leafy park space with ample parking if required – just a seven minute walk from the train station and five minutes from the nearest bus stop.

Clean, cosy, comfortable, and fully accessible with three disabled toilets, the Centre is a lovely self contained unit with a secluded rear garden, perfect for weekend workshops, away-days and training days. Rooms can also be hired separately for meetings, one-to-one sessions, or therapies.

Prices are charged on an hourly basis with a daily rate available for weekends. We operate a sliding scale, and all terms are negotiable.

Securing your booking

We require you to pay the full amount if the hire is under £200 and to pay a 25% deposit if your hire total is over £200.

We also require you to read, agree to and sign a copy of your hire agreement confirming that you have accepted our terms and conditions.

Payment can be by BACS, cheque or card over the phone or in person.

Cancellation Policy
If for any reason you need to cancel your booking, (for bookings of up to £200):
  • With less than 2 weeks’ notice we will retain the full total you paid to secure the booking.
  • With 2-4 weeks’ notice we will refund you half the total you paid to secure the booking.
  • With over 4 weeks’ notice we will return the total hire fee excluding a £20 admin fee.
If for any reason you need to cancel your booking, (for bookings of over £200):

Your 25% non-refundable deposit will be retained as a cancellation fee.

Long term bookings (i.e. more than one session) which you then cancel (for whatever reason) we will charge you for the entire duration of the booking. This is because we are a small charitable organisation that relies on income from room hire to maintain the building and a long term booking made by you may have precluded another hirer using that same facility.

If we cancel the hire for any reason we will return all deposits or monies in full.
