Chelmsford Diocese Authorisation  Scheme - 'Serving with accountability' 

Our  authorisation Scheme has been launched for nearly three years and is for those in roles of responsibility among youth, children or families. The Scheme covers children's, youth or family workers and employing churches and overseing bodies. 

The diocesan Youth Advisers will be happy to discuss the Scheme with you if you are interested in becoming an authorised youth worker.

Further information about the Scheme, please see the letter below from the Bishop of Barking. 


Children's & Youth Audit

The Diocese of Chelmsford undertook a Children’s and Youth Audit in 2011.


Smart Guides

These brilliant Smart Guides have been produced by Alice Smith to prepare for anyone in the Bradwell Episcopal Area that may be looking for some tips for youth work. However they are so good that we recommend that anyone from any area of the Diocese should make them a must on their reading list!

Starting from Scratch

Recruiting and retaining volunteers

Employment

We hope that you find these guides very useful to equip and encourage your youth work.
