Centenary Project

The Centenary Project was set up to support a step change in the work with children, young people and families in the Diocese of Sheffield. The project helps parishes and mission areas to employ children’s, youth or families’ workers, primarily in those parishes serving deprived communities. Evidence suggests that parishes that employ someone to support children and young people are most likely to grow. Find out more
