Inspiring a Spirit of Inclusion
A Day of Inspiration and Learning for Children's and Youth Workers
Taking place on Saturday 16th March at Great Lumley Methodist Church (Chester-Le-Street), this training day will help you to discover:
- The benefits of being a more inclusive place for all
- New ideas to think creatively about including young disabled people
- Practical Christian activities and personal stories to expand your outreach with those affected by disability
There will be discounted resources available for sale, and a light lunch provided - we're asking for a suggested donation of £5 towards costs.
To find out more, please email us.
We recently found this challenging article on the webpage of 'Children's Work' magazine. The author, Alice Buckley, who regularly blogs at www.playontheword.com writes about the experiences of families with children with additional needs in church. How does your church support families?
Moldova – our next Integr8 team, September 2013
A team of volunteers is to be put together for a trip to take place from 23rd to 30th September 2013. Following the Integr8 team visit to Moldova in February 2012, charity Breadline has again invited us to work alongside and encourage their partners in a desperately poor rural area. Our activities will be to develop the initiatives of the local churches and other agencies.
Training sessions and workshops will be part of the programme as will some community-based work for the therapists. Local social workers struggle to provide sufficient help to elderly and disabled people, and would be greatly helped through more interaction with other groups including the churches.
Community based solutions are being devised and we want to support those through appropriate inputs, whether in the form of training and educational resources, information on reaching local solutions, or the provision of wheelchairs and mobility aids. At the forefront of thinking is the equipping of local people to be effective agents and advocates for disability.
