The 16+ club is a social and sports activities session for young people with learning disabilities aged between 16 and 25 years of age. The club meet every Monday evening during the educational calendar year of 39 weeks between 6pm and 9pm at The St John Fisher Church in Prittlewell.
The club is staffed by one co-ordinator and several assistants, who are on hand to support the young people in whatever they wish to do. The club has recently also grown into a homework club as it allows the young people to discuss their work with the trained staff.
From April 2012 the the weekly fee for attending the 16+ club increased to £6 but this has provided the club with the best financial security it can have. The 16+ club is now a fully self sufficient club meaning it is not reliant on having to get funding grants from other organisations. It’s running costs are fully covered by the members weekly fees allowing them full involvement in the development and growth of the club.
