Supporting our members

The purpose of the CCA is to bring together independent projects from across the country, enabling them to share good practice, work collaboratively and become more than the sum of their parts.

We support a network of local community chaplaincies

We support our members by providing:

Training Resources

We have a six module training programme that can be used to train up new mentors working within Community Chaplaincy.  

Peer Groups and Forums

We run regular national and regional peer groups for members to share experiences and develop good practice. We also hold a Forum focussing specifically on the needs of women in the Criminal Justice System.

Weekly Newsletter

Members receive a weekly e-newsletter with updates accross the Network and wider sector.

User Involvement

We have a team of 'Experts By Experience' and are developing a strategy to promote further User Involvement across the network.
