Welcome to Sutton Life Centre

Sutton Life Centre is partially reopen for bookings of Meeting Rooms and our 3G Pitch facilities. Please contact us for more information.

Sutton Life Centre is a state of the art educational and community facility in South London promoting good citizenship, personal safety and the environment. We are home to a range of facilities, including a public library, hireable spaces and our award winning Life Skills Tours.

We are also a proud member of the Safety Centre Alliance (SCA); a collection of Safety Centres located across the UK which work together to share knowledge and best practice.

The centre is owned and managed by the London Borough of Sutton.


An Educational Experience Like No Other…

“The Life Centre’s use of technology allows it to address difficult topics effectively. Domestic violence and sexual bullying are handled well and will provide very useful information to help young people cope and find the support they need.”

~ Sue Minto, Head of ChildLine

Our Life Skills Tours equip your pupils with the knowledge they need to make informed life choices, as well as enable them to recognise key risks and dangers. As a result, young people are empowered with the confidence to take actions which will reduce the risks to themselves and others.

By presenting learning in a highly visual and kinaesthetic format, our Life Skills Tours appeal to children of all ages. Because of this, they are especially effective at engaging with those who may find formal education more difficult. So, if you are looking for an exciting approach to learning outside the classroom, look no further!

If you would like further information about our Life Skills Tours, or would like to book a visit for your school, please see our School Trips page.
