Introduction to CCCF

Christian Child Care Forum operates by bringing its constituency of organisations, individuals and families together with issues of concern through its Annual Forum, its Newsletter and various working groups.

 

 

 

 

WHAT IS CCCF?
The CCCF offers Christians who work with children and young people the opportunity to meet, share ideas and offer each other support.
It is committed  to its Christian basis and to high standards of professionalism, but the CCCF is also inclusive, and other people concerned  about child care are very welcome to participate.
The CCCF is independent, and although it is not a pressure group it is free to speak out when necessary.

WHY DOES CCCF HAVE SUCH A LONG NAME?
Because every word counts. It is Christian. It is concerned  with children (and young people). It is concerned about  their care- especially those who have particular needs. And it is a Forum where everyone can contribute their ideas, listen, learn, enjoy fellowship and be supported.

WHO IS IT FOR?
Anyone who works with children and young people, whether as a professional, or as an unqualified worker or as a volunteer, or who has a concern for the quality of child care in the country.
Some members work in organisations which are explicitly Christian but many work in child care organisations with no religious allegiance.
Most people at CCCF events are Christians, but these are friendly occasions, and non-Christians are welcome too.

WHAT DOES THE CCCF DO?
During the next twelve months the CCCF will be:

• Taking part in conferences and other events in partnership with other organisations;

• Using its website to provide support and guidance to Christians child care workers and any others needing help or answers to problems about children and young people;

• Holding Forums.
