Children and Young People

Children and Young People Team

The Children and Young People Team are here to help with advice on appointing employed workers, advising volunteers and working alongside incumbents, PCC's and Deaneries to consider how parishes can best welcome, nurture and include children and young people as equal partners in the life of the Church.  The team can also offer training to parishes, including putting on first aid training.  They have also set up a Diocesan Youth Council for young people aged 11 – 18 in the Diocese.
