Children and young people are a vital part of the life of our meetings. Undertaking and supporting work with them can, however, appear complex and doing it is often hard. It is important that such work is done well. We offer a variety of opportunities to help Quakers in their engagement with and oversight of children and young people in a Quaker context. Workshops do not seek to tell you what to do but to enable you to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes so that your work becomes more effective. These opportunities will support Quaker engagement with children and young people in local and area meetings. The workshops are facilitated by the children and young people's work trainers who are part of the Quaker Life Network and are supported by the children and young people's work staff team.
