Setting up an additional needs ministry may be a daunting prospect. If you are just starting out, I would recommend that you look at the Urban Saints web-site where there is helpful guidance on inclusion. They also offer training and advice to churches. Your local Diocesan Office should also be able to help you.
We are including a few practical pointers here that we hope you might find useful from our experience in running our groups. This section of the web-site is provided in outline only, & is by no means a comprehensive package, but we hope you might find some of the links and thoughts helpful. We will add to it as time allows.
