In response to the Children and Families Act (2014), PACSO has extended its age limits, and we now work with children and young people from birth to 25 years. Although, at this stage, our work with 18-25 year olds is limited, we have two very special clubs for this group of young people: Pub Club, and Job Club. PACSO Plus trips and Family days out are all open to our young people, too.
On Wednesday evenings, we run our Pub Club for age 18-25 years, from 6.15- 7.45 pm. Pub club meets at different pubs in Chichester and the surrounding area each week. We pick up our PACSO Plus members from the office in the minibus, and enjoy an hour of conversation and games in a social setting. On our last meeting of the term, we have a meal together.
On Thursday, we travel to Tesco Chichester in the PACSO minibus, where we join the staff team for Job Club. Our young people, all aged between 16 and 25 years, take part in a variety of jobs including stacking shelves, serving on the till and packing bags. Our thanks to Tesco Charitable Trust who initially gave us a grant to launch this worthwhile activity.
All our clubs are bookable a term in advance. Bursaries are available. If you are interested in participating in our clubs please be sure to become a PACSO member.
