The weekend will be facilitated by Nathan Jones of the charity ‘Talk Through’ who will explore the issues alongside other experienced youth workers across a number of sessions over the weekend.

The broad outline of the weekend will be:-

  • Friday Evening: Exploring the Landscape so we understand the situation around wellbeing in young people. Have things changed over the past few years?
  • Saturday: Exploring support for wellbeing at a deeper level and how we can help young people. What are their personal experiences?
  • Sunday: Exploring Faith and Wellbeing and discussion on what next. What can we all do? How do we look after ourselves and look out for others? What can the church do?

CWM will be responsible for the costs of the weekend and will pay all travel expenses for all attendees.
