Pastoral Care and Wellbeing

Welcome to the Wellbeing pages. The diocesan provision to support ministerial and staff wellbeing includes a flexible range of support and resources which we hope will meet your individual needs at various times.  Some are designed to support you through more stressful, tough times, and some are designed to walk alongside you, offering strategic, reflective, and spiritual accompaniment.

If you have any questions about wellbeing and pastoral care or if you experience any difficulties accessing the named sources of support, please contact Sally Bubbers.  She is also available for a general chat about strategies for tackling problems and/or improving wellbeing.
