Welcome to the website of the Paediatric Chaplaincy Network (for GB&I). We are a group of multi faith religious and spiritual care staff and volunteers working in hospitals, hospices and the wider community.

Paediatric Chaplaincy: Principles, Practices and Skills

We are pleased to announce Paediatric Chaplaincy, edited by Paul Nash, Mark Bartel and Sally Nash, will be published in April 2018.


Drawing on a range of approaches developed by paediatric chaplaincy teams worldwide, this edited collection provides best principles, practices and skills of chaplaincy work with neonates, infants, children, young people and their families.


By engaging with paediatric chaplaincy from an international, multifaith perspective, contributors from around the world and different faith traditions show what good spiritual, religious and pastoral care for children and their families looks like.
