Last month, members of the YCW National Team met with representatives from Caritas Salford to help support a range of Task and Finish Groups.
The groups covered topics that had been identified earlier in the year by a diverse group of charities and local parish representatives. They included: our role in advocacy - such as on mental health and justice & peace - and how we can better represent and connect with young people.
The YCW were asked to help share our joint missions around advocacy and young people, including a discussion about the SEE, JUDGE and ACT method, the art of accompaniment and leadership building programme.
Marc Besford, National Training and Development Worker, attended the groups and shared his thoughts on the projects: "This was a fantastic opportunity to help support local efforts across Salford Diocese. We have our HQ based here and a growing number of groups, so to be able to work even closer and share what the YCW does is something I really welcome."
