youth leaders

In Blackburn Diocese we have a wealth of experienced, wonderful and dedicated individuals and teams working with and ministering to young people across Lancashire. We want to offer the best possible support for everyone working with young people, whether in volunteer or paid roles. Throughout the year we seek to offer different training opportunities. Ben, our youth adviser, is available to chat through anything, offering support and guidance in your specific context.

One of the ways that we seek to do this is through a monthly Youth Leader & Worker meeting opportunity. These vary between ‘coffee drop-ins’ and ‘evenings’ and aim to give youth leaders and workers a forum in which to meet each other, share ideas and good practice, hear about resources to support your work with young people, and at the evening events receive some training. The dates for these over the coming years are:
