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. This is a very new website and launched to hold the videos for our newest resources. New pages will be added shortly.

Resources - NEW HYMNS

The PCN has started to produce resources for children, young people, families and staff. The latest addition are the hymns for funeral and memorial services, located in "Resources". We also have resources called Held in Hope. A series of booklets for 3-7 year old children. These have been produced with Red Balloon Resources, the resource arm of the Chaplaincy of Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Christian Education Publishing. rbr@bch.nhs.uk and www.christianeducation.org.uk These books are all available from www.christianeducation.org.uk for £5.99 each. Discounts available to PCN members and those attending training events.

New Professional Network Forum

Paediatric Chaplaincy Network for GB&I have created a LinkedIn Group so those involved in paediatric spiritual and religious care can support each other, share ideas, discuss issues and be informed of new developments. This is with the reassurance of a secure setting using a recognised professional network media. Contact details for further information

2016 PCN meeting date

A date for your diary: PCN Annual meeting - 9 November 2016.

Theme: TBC
Location: Birmingham Children's Hospital

We had a good PCN gathering for our 2015 meeting in Leeds. The theme of last year's event was 'Supporting Staff', and there were some very interesting discussions around how Chaplains can support and improve resilience for staff working with sick children in hospitals and hospices.
