Event description

Description

Humanists UK is committed to ensuring that all people with non-religious beliefs have access to pastoral support, just as religious people have access to such support. It does this through its pastoral arm, Humanist Care. They are also committed to ensuring that non-religious people should be able and capable of providing pastoral support to all those who want it, irrespective of their religion or belief.

Humanists UK is building a network of accredited non-religious pastoral carers to provide that support, and now have nearly 150 operating across a range of institutional settings throughout the UK.

Simon will cover the rationale for a non-religious pastoral support service in institutional and community settings, and highlight some of the key challenges that have had to be overcome to establish the service, as well as the current and future opportunities.

Simon became Humanists UK’s first full-time Head of Pastoral Support in early 2016. Whilst working for a mental health charity earlier in his career, Simon set up many support groups across the UK for service users and carers, and he helped campaign on a number of initiatives related to mental health equality. He then went on to be the first male employed by a domestic violence organisation in Cheshire, where he established a refuge for male victims and a voluntary CBT programme for abusive men.

We'll be going over the road to the Old Post Office pub after the talk - you're very welcome to join us!
