Spiritual care resources
We have pioneered the use of spiritual care activities which we have developed for use with sick children and young people who are in hospital. These activities are aimed at providing a fun and informal way to open up a conversation about spirituality with children:
Sibling Support Project
Chaplaincy Standards for work with Children and Young People
CPSC are part of a group which are working on articulating multidisciplinary standards for chaplaincy with children and young people including education, sport, youth justice etc. We hope there will be a series of publications linked to the project. The first booklet we have produced focuses on Christian Chaplaincy and was funded by a Christian Trust.
