Youth Development Project
The Youth Development Project of the Diocese of London is a partnership between The Children’s Society and The Diocese of London. It was set up in 2005 to assist churches in delivering youth work within a structure that promotes safe practice.
The main areas of the project are:
- Support and advice
- Development of new pieces of work
The Youth Development Project has developed tools that are free to all Diocese of London churches. Please contact Ruth or Noelle for a copy.
- The Leap and Bounds interactive tool kit will help you to develop inclusive and safe youth activities
- The Self-Evaluation Tool (SET) is a simple quality assurance system designed to help you get an overall picture of where you’re currently at in your youth work and identify what changes are needed to improve outcomes for young people.
About the team:
Ruth is the Senior Project Worker. Ruth and the team work across the Diocese supporting parishes to develop their youth work. They are on hand to help build new pieces of youth work, give advice and to offer basic Youth Work training to staff and volunteers.
