FE chaplains wanted to take part in exciting Renew Well-Being Pilot!

In responding to the needs expressed by colleges we are looking to partner with Renew Wellbeing and offer an introduction to their approach to wellbeing that has been so successful in churches and is now being extended to young people in a range of settings and in particular FE.

Renew Wellbeing helps churches open spaces of welcome and inclusion in partnership with mental health teams to improve mental and emotional wellbeing. This successful outreach is now being extended to include young people in schools and colleges and their families.

Please contact Nigel Roberts (fechaplaincy[at] to register your interest. An introductory session is set for 25 August, 10am, with full training to follow for those wishing to pursue the project further.
