Chanctonbury Youth Project

Ashington Parish Council has joined forces with Chanctonbury Churches to provide a full time Youth Worker for our area

We are pleased to work with Nick Taylor who is tasked with delivering Youth Services to all Ashington Youth for 18 hours a week.  This includes opening the youth club on Monday and Thursday evenings for young people in years 6-7 (Mondays) and years 8-9 (Thursdays).  Older youth are welcome to drop in after each session has ended.  We hope to offer more ‘member-only’ nights later in the year.

The main aim of the club sessions is to create a safe space for young people to meet, chill out, have fun, be themselves and try new things.  We have varied theme nights including quiz nights, world record attempt evenings, baking, craft and film nights.  In 2019, we hope to start a partnership with Sussex Clubs for Young People and offer nationally recognised awards to those young people interested in having a head start on their CV!

Ashington Parish Council manages the delivery of this project through the Community Partnership Group and Minutes of the meetings can be viewed on our Minutes and Meetings page.
