Policies & advice
It's difficult to keep up with the constant changes in Government policy. Deciphering jargon and finding what is relevant to your work with Children and Young People in the Church, is also hard.
Our advisers have gathered relevant policies on these pages and have either sourced existing summaries or produced notes to help you make sense of it all!
