Looking for the right volunteer opportunities (for yourself or for the young people you work with), or finding suitable volunteers for your project, can be a time-consuming process. If you’re in London or Hertfordshire, Caritas Westminster’s Volunteer Service can match volunteers to projects, with a wide range of opportunities to suit different skills and interests, and the time people have available. AND – here’s the best bit – they want to extend this free service to cover the rest of the UK, which sounds like an excellent idea! (And if you’re in London on Tuesday 5th June 2018, visit their Volunteer Fair)
The Salesian Media Office shares a reflection, video and prayer each week to help young people reflect on the Gospel reading for the coming Sunday. It’s updated each week and is a great resource for young people themselves and form time prayers!
